Local children who live in the Rim of the World communities and who are mentally or physically disabled in some way will have something wonderful to look forward to this summer, thanks to a new outreach program being sponsored by the Arrowbear Lions Club and Pali Adventures in Running Springs.
Limited spaces for this unique program at the camp (formerly known for many, many years as Camp O’ongo) are available for children 10-years-old through 15-years-old.
This special program will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 noon each Thursday morning and it will offer the children the opportunity to try fun new activities in a safe and exciting environment. The programs will be designed and then implemented by members of the camp’s Counselor-in-Training program under the watchful even of “veteran” staff members.
Activities may include: modified sports, board games, inflatable obstacle courses and a bounce house, a High ropes course, board games and other “adaptable” games and adventures.
Program dates include: June 25, July 2, July 9, July 16, July 23, July 30, August 6 and August 13.
For more information be sure to attend the upcoming meeting on Thursday, May 7 at 7 p.m. at the Robert Hootman Senior Community Center on Running Springs School Road.
This exciting program for local children who may never have had the opportunity to attend anything like this should prove to be a wonderful experience for the children involved.
For more information call the camp director, Daniel Hammond at (909) 867-5743, ext. 261.
Thank you to the local Lions Club members for supporting this exciting program! I know it will be an enormous success!
