Dennis Bayne (center) camp’s long-time Dietary Director, addresses a lodge full of family and friends as we celebrate his retirement. Dennis was camp’s first Dietary Director with a Culinary Degree. He made huge strides in the kitchen from an incredible variety of food (always keeping in mind the special diets) to bringing on new activities, like Cases for Camp, the Board Room for luncheon’s and meetings and much more. Dennis was a 24/7 staffer. No job was ever too big or too overwhelming for Dennis. His dedication to the camper and the camp, will be long cherished. -Charlie
Camp Courageous is very fortunate to have Don & Sharon Kouba as friends. From the Pineapple Gala to our relationship with all that Ketelsen RV does for Camp Courageous, they are always there to help. A wonderful couple…we are so fortunate to call friends.
A big thank you goes out to the West Delaware Youth Association for Disabled Citizens. They donated several bags of food and kitchen supplies.
The Cedar Rapids Thursday Noon Optimist have been long time supporters of the Camp Courageous. I fondly remember splitting wood by hand with Gary Kouba (front left…former WMT staffer) and the rest of the club, back in about 1980. Much of their club members help at the camp’s open houses and other events. Super group!
Thank you to our friends at the 1st Ave. Wells Fargo Bank in Cedar Rapids for donating their 2013 Horse, “Shamrock” to camp. For years Tom & Barb Eggleston would stop by for this donation for the Pineapple Gala…now they are both gone…but their legacy lives on. Thank you Wells Fargo!
