Busy Time of Year!

This recent busy round of events started the last weekend of May with a Girl Scout Retreat that we hosted here at camp. The weekend provided a great mother-daughter time with fun activities, including a tea party and group games. The weekend also served as a service project for the troop as they did some spring cleaning and helped with projects for camp.

The following weekend marked our 6th annual Dance 4 Disability (D4D) held at the Grand Pavilion at Bay Beach in Green Bay. It was a great success with close to 300 in attendance.

This event brings together people with disabilities, along with many organizations, families and caregivers, to celebrate the disability community.

After the dance, the Burys hit the road for Muskegon, MI to serve a week at Joni & Friends Family Retreats. Jen started her first connection with disability ministry 11 years ago with Joni & Friends Retreats. 

JAF Retreats are a lot like Camp Daniel with themes and costumes. The theme this year was "All Things Are Possible", using The Mission Impossible motif. The Burys used their Unbelieveable costumes from Camp Daniel's Trust theme. 

JAF Retreats are unique in that the entire family with someone with a disability attends. There are opportunities for mom's to get together, dads, and siblings. When Camp Daniel's grounds are complete, we will be able host family camps!

Then this past weekend, Annissa and Ruth had their graduation party here at Camp. It was also a party for Anthony, as he graduated from the 8th grade.

Annissa will be attending Madison Area Technical College for Event Planning and Ruth will be attending UW La Crosse for Recreational Management.
Anthony will be attending Crivitz High School. :-)

Thanks to all those who helped with and/or attended all these events!
