Would you recommend Down Home Ranch?

NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE If your child can function without any supervision, this ranch may be OK. Our son has fragile x and although high functioning, needs supervision and reminders. Upon arrival at the ranch it was clear that there was no adult supervision, we spoke with the director and was assured that our son would be supervised and there was plenty of adults to watch over all the kids. When we arrived to pick up our son, we noticed that he was holding his ears, and upon closer look his ears were swollen and draining. We noticed he was also holding his lip and when we looked he had a sore in his mouth about the size of a dime. Also, he had a sliver in his finger that was swollen and full of puss. After two trips to emergency care and ENT specialist my sons ear infections (both ears) was healing. Please consider taking your child to another camp, we dont want other kids to have to suffer.Next time we will rely on first impressions T Delplato Dallas TX
