The theme for camps this year is “2gether We Can!!” The 2013 camp will be filled with exciting and challenging activities. Everyone will work with a partner, but to improve social skills, those partners will change twice each day. We believe it will be a fun time for all.
PARENTS! Applications will be accepted from Feb. 4 - April. 30. Late applications may not be accepted due to limited numbers. Come join the fun! This no-cost, overnight program combines both education and recreation. For more information contact Brent Behrens at 580-622-4949, cell: 580-618-5009 or email at email@example.com.
