MMI has been a significant part of the Bates Family’s life for over 25 years.  Greg has been attending camps and special events since he was five.  Sam and Scott both volunteered during middle- and high school and Sam worked at the youth summer camp for several years.  Greg has built lasting relationships with the staff through his involvement with Munroe Meyer and his participation with Munroe Meyer has enhanced his life and the lives of the Bates Family in many ways.  Greg is extremely social and the variety of programs designed to challenge and enhance Greg’s skills has allowed him to continue to progress and succeed. The evolvement of the Adult Recreational program and the various programs offered to young adults is rewarding. Greg is involved in the Adult evening camp, Cooking Club, Garden Club and Urban Adventure Club, just to name a few has changed Greg’s life in many positive ways with leisure and life skills. The Bates Family is blessed to be able to participate in this extraordinary event.
