Jasmine's mother was so impressed with the camp that she called ahead and registered her for the next year, saying that Jasmine has been a different child since her week at Camp Happy Valley.
The website boasts that campers "may leave Camp Happy Valley, but Camp Happy Valley never leaves you!
"Happy Valley really is a life changing week for the children and they look forward to attending all year," camp staff said.
Campers age 6 to 14 can attend any of three-week long camp sessions, which run June 25-28, July 2-6 and July 9-13.
The program is looking for 300 sponsorships at a cost of $100 per camper.
