  • What Should the Voters Know?: Each year we celebrate Campers who age out or graduate from our program. Though the Summer Camp program was virtual, in 2021, with guidance from our Wellness and Health Advisory Team and the creativity of our volunteers and staff - we were able to continue this tradition! Several pods of volunteers made up small but mighty parades and were assigned certain campers to visit safely. Each Camper was presented with a gift from Camp, a beautiful fused glass piece and a jumbo card filled with so many memories - these two items were specially designed to made by camp volunteers to be enjoyed for years to come! Video from these visits was then put together for all to enjoy at the end of the week. Graduating Campers and their families were invited to join us for the festivities. A bittersweet but beautiful celebration of their time at Camp.
