SOME'S Senior Summer Camp
A Week of Rest and Relaxation
Just last month, SOME offered their annual Senior Summer Camp for senior citizens in need of rest and relaxation but who are unable to afford a vacation. This week-long retreat is offered twice each summer and located at a beautiful facility in West Virginia. Transportation is provided, as are meals and mail delivery. Summer Camp this year was a HUGE success, with over 120 seniors in attendance. Camp activities this year included manicures, bingo, arts and crafts, relaxation, and a talent show. This is the 39th consecutive year that SOME has hosted Senior Summer Camp.
"It's a Place I Look Forward to Coming to."
Nellie Best (Camper, bottom right) said, "It's a place I look forward to come to if possible. The environment and the security is something I look forward to. The counselors and staff are great because they are caring and help serve others."
"Every Camper Had a Blast."
Volunteer services program manager, Javon Hansknecht(below left), was adamant this was one of the best years of summer camp in his three years. He said, "Every camper had a blast. It went incredibly smooth and there was great energy. Everyone was lively and thankful."
