Circle of Friends Camp.In July 2021, 49 disabled campers ages 8-59 gathered at Lost Valley Bible Camp in Gaylord, Michigan, for five days and four nights at the 17th Annual Circle of Friends Camp. The non-profit camp was started in 2004 by Pastor Bob Moody and his family to give special needs kids of all ages a traditional camping experience and to provide caregivers a respite. Sadly, Pastor Bob died in February of 2016 but his children and friends have continued to run the camp to honor his legacy. Staffed by Bob's family, friends and volunteers, special needs campers create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Many campers receive scholarships to attend camp for little or no cost.Campers enjoy wagon rides, go-karts, climbing walls, a giant slip and slide under a bubble machine, fishing, crafts, s'mores and songs around the campfire, live concerts and their favorite karaoke night complete with black light balloons and face paint! This year, after the first night's chapel, campers were excited to receive their very own toiletry boxes from Ben Lido's company, Convenience Kits International.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the hand sanitizer and the wipes. I spent part of Sunday delivering some of it to friends and family who either have or taking care of someone with a compromised immune system. Everyone was so very appreciative and extended a heartfelt thank you to you. I truly appreciate you and your team. I pray for the health, safety and sanity of you and yours during these trying times.
The DC Special Education Cooperative works with DC Charter Schools. Our work allows us to support youth as they transition from high school into the real world. We used these kits as a part of a unit on job-readiness. We instruct youth on how to be properly groomed when they go into the workplace so they can obtain and maintain employment.
