UPDATE: Laughter's Voice camp has been postponed until 2015.

In 2012 Felix Skinner attended Camp BCAPS, a camp for kids who stutter in British Columbia. The experience was so valuable for him that he suggested a camp like BCAPS should be started in Ontario. His mother, Andrea, got to work making that happen, and has partnered with Mansfield Outdoor Centre for a camp that will take place this July. The camp is called Laughter's Voice and its goal is to provide a non-threatening social environment for kids who stutter.

On Wednesday morning Felix and his father spoke on CBC Metro Morning about his stuttering and how attending camp benefitted him. You can listen here.
