A ‘Grand Old Time’ at UCS Camp
Joy and laughter were abundant for everyone who participated in the UCS ‘Gathering Place Camp,’ at Camp Ondawa in Shaftsbury earlier this month. “I can’t wait for next year, I’ve already got my cabin all planned out,” said Sam, a first-time camp participant. “We’re all having a grand old time.” “I have autism and I’m very proud to be autistic,” said Stacey, who read out loud the words written on a necklace that he made during camp.
The Gathering Place has provided the backdrop for laughter, learning and great life experiences for individuals with intellectual disabilities since 2006. Camp Ondawa is sponsored by UCS and funding for the camp and activities is provided by support from generous donors. UCS staff provides services onsite to ensure the safety and needs of each individual are met during camp. Funding is provided by support from generous donors. For information, call 802-442-5491.
