CAMP JAKE :: Just around the corner

We are in our final weeks before the second session of Camp Jake in 2012. The Red Thread  team is preparing an incredible experience for 44 campers from St. Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children. Seventeen counselors—including physical therapists, creative arts therapists and other professionals—have put their heart and soul into this program and plan to provide another life-changing camp for the participants.

St. Vincent's staff and students are very excited about the upcoming camp. They've even been considering ways to help fundraise for future camps so that the camp experience can be shared with more children with disabilities for years to come.

Please keep our team, the children and caregivers in your thoughts and prayers as they prepare for a fun and educational experience at Camp Jake.
