It's been 4 years since I first met Charlie Chivers at a CCPD conference in Indianpolis. We are glad to finally see a Special Touch Summer GetAway Disability Camp arrive here in Southern California. Thanks to the SoCal District of the Assemblies of God, the cost for the 1 week camp is only $395. That's unheard of folks! A typical day camp costs between $150-$200 out here.
I have attended camps in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. I served as a one-on-one caregiver once. It's an amazing experience. You would think a parent of a child with disability might get bored, but it was refreshing to my spirit too!
I've looking forward to coordinating it this year. If you would like to help out, contact me.
