“Our children have been so incredibly lucky to attend ASAP! Summer camp for the last two summers. Of all the weeks they spend in camp each summer, this is their favorite, the one they beg to go back to. They love it because it’s fun, interactive and exciting. They have amazing staff and a large assortment of activities to choose from. We love it because the environment is carefully created to be safe, creative and inclusive, all while exposing them to so many different and exciting experiences….Thank you ASAP! and its sponsors for making this year’s fantasies accessible!”

– Jess and Ty Barr, parents of ASAP! Summer Campers


“COVID has taken so much away from us all, but there is so much to be grateful for — like that wonderful summer evening we spent at the Side by Side event last year — the first live performance we’d attended in months. Keep up the tremendous work you all do!”

– Christianne King, parent of Summer Strings participant


“Since I recited “A Tango of Love” at the Side by Side event with ASAP! this summer, I have been at Hamilton College avidly working towards a career in Creative Writing. Hamilton has given me the opportunity to participate in many poetry slams, seek out publishers for my work, and even to share my original songs on New York radio. When I reflect on how far I’ve come, I feel so lucky to have participated in the Young Writers Event this past July, because not only did I get to work with such wonderful people, but I was able to share my music and poetry with such an amazingly supportive community! Without that support, I don’t know if I would have the confidence to pursue what I truly love at college here today.”

“My favorite part of the [Metamorphosis] program is giving our students the space to explore, design, and create. During and after the program I noticed that my class has a bit more patience with each other.”

– Kadiann Johnson, 3rd grade teacher at Children’s Community School


“I would come to school on the weekends if there was an ASAP! program!”
