Camp Independence

Working my way through college I was blessed to be a camp recruiter for the college I attended. That meant that I spent 10 weeks each summer at camps all over the western part of the United States.  I experienced such joy watching children playing, swimming, shrieking with laughter at something funny that had happened! I think back now and realize that I never saw a child with a disability at any of the camps that I worked at.  I am saddened by that thought but then I immediately look to our Camp Independence Summer Camp.  These precious children get to spend their summer days at a horse farm, going on a boat cruise, roller skating (the children in wheelchairs have a blast out on that floor!),  canoeing, etc. and I think that  I am  once again blessed to watch children playing, swimming and shrieking with laughter.
