Community Action Partnership was pleased to host Camp ICanIWill this past summer. The camp serviced youth residing at Landmark Village Apartments in Fairborn, Ohio.
In addition to having a lot of fun, the youth learned social responsibility, self-worth, respect, healthy habits and conflict resolution. Youth had several chances to join the fun at five different camps, each lasting two weeks long.
“What I learned at camp was to be respectful and pay attention when spoken to,” shared one camper.
Parents were also very appreciative of the camp’s leaders and the learning opportunities for their children.
One parent shared that, “I have never seen my son express himself as well has he has since he has been at this camp."
Camp ICanIWill was a success and was a great reflection of how we are helping people, changing lives for the entire family. The campers and their parents cannot wait to come back next year!! We hope to provide the program again, so be on the lookout for Camp IcanIwill!
