LINDSAY: "I would return"
Lindsay wasn’t certain what she was getting into when her college roommate signed her up to be a special needs “camp buddy” over winter break. Any reservations she might have had were quickly dispelled when the fun began.
Along with other volunteers, Lindsay started her camp adventure with training on how to work with the people with disabilities who would attend the event.
Accommodating games such as elbow tag brought out the physical, while crafts such as Christmas tree stars and coasters decorated with crosses allowed creativity to shine through. Everyone decorated Christmas cookies!
The weekend closed with the campers singing for their families and sharing about the Advent wreath, and each camper received an award.
Lindsay remarked, “The campers were excited to be there and were having a blast. I enjoyed myself too…I would return.
