Elizabeth just returned from her fourth year as a counselor at Camp ReCreation in Richardton, ND. Camp Rec is a summer camp experience for teens and adults with disabilities. This year was especially challenging yet rewarding one for Elizabeth.
Besides trying to make it a fun, memorable experience for her camper/s, she learned how to change Depends, make transfers, and so on. During her first week she had two campers--one teen and another in her 20's--both with autism. The second week she was paired with a young adult with cerebral palsy whom she totally loved!

I am so proud of her dedication to this wonderful camp! And I know she was blessed, too, by her interactions with the campers and other counselors.
AND....Elizabeth can't wait to introduce Grace to camp next year. Watch out, Camp, Grace is coming!!
