Jonathan Down, a Pediatrician who attended a Whitecrow Village Camp wrote in the British Columbia Medical Journal “For a week last summer, I was a camp volunteer. I was seeking professional depth, but what I experienced so affected me that I have changed the way I practice…I simply wanted to be i a better position to effectively counsel families about FASD following a diagnosis… I had not expected to be emotionally affected. It was not until Whitecrow Village Camp that I understood how I had inadvertently limited my understanding of FASD by restricting myself to a clinical setting. I highly recommend the (camp volunteer) experience to anyone with a sense of fun and a need to know more about this disorder.”
