Lifeguard visit thrills campers at Camp Courageous

Camp Courageous Campers RJ Hawkins loves helicopters, so his teachers from Washington Elementary School in Fairfield decided to ask St Luke’s Lifeguard helicopter to come visit when they came to Camp Courageous.

Camper RJ got to sit in the Pilot’s seat with his teacher Jen Christensen with the help of Pilot Skip Barthle.

All the students from Fairfield got to see the helicopter up close with the help of its crew.

RJ was still loving every minute of it as all the kids got to see the inside.

There was time for a group photo before the crew took off. From left to Right: Washington Teacher Jennifer Christensen, Flight Paramedic Marni Wacha, Flight Nurse Vicki Petersen, Student RJ Hawkins, Pilot Skip Barthle and Craig Willoughby.
