Camp Courageous would like to thank Kent Feed out of Muscatine for their tremendous support over the years in providing Camp the feed it takes to provide for the farm animals… which is huge. Far right, hanging on to a camp goat is Uriel Moorer. Uriel is the new Nature Specialist. He has been with the camp for several years and is an extra special staff person to many campers.
The All American Miniature Horse Club recently made a great contribution to Camp Courageous. Pictured are a portion of the club members that run the show at Kirkwood Community College that generated some of the funds that were donated. What a great group… the camp thanks them for their efforts!
We were happy to have this hard working group from First Presbyterian in Beaver City, Nebraska back this year! In addition to all of the effort and elbow grease they gave camp, the youth decided to use the money they would normally use for an evening of fun and entertainment and donate it to the campership fund.
