Snyder family travels the miles to attend Camp Courageous

Camper Grace Snyder from the state of Wyoming stands proundly next to her brother, Al Snyder of Mondovi Wisconsin. Grace has been coming to camp since Al Snyder discovered camp when he was a hypnotist at the Pineapple Gala years ago. Grace use to fly in, and her brother would pick her up at the airport and bring her to camp. Grace came to camp via an airplane on September 10, 2001. The next day was 9/11/01 when everything in the air stopped and landed at the closest airport. The Snyer Family feared what might have happened if Grace’s plane was diverted. So Al began to drive from Wisconsin to Wyoming back to Iowa to leave Grace off for her week at camp, then back to Wyoming and home to Wisconsin. Grace feels it is worth every mile. “I love coming to Camp Courageous!” Grace said. And we love having her!
