Whenever this Two River Sams group volunteers at Camp, they make the event seem so easy and run much smoother. They also made the pancake breakfast a lot more fun! After they finished working, they carried in a huge donation of quitls, Ziploc bags, food, headbands, and 242 stocking hats! This camping club are a delightful group of people. Thanks!
Gilbert and Mike Diercks, from Clinton, enjoyed the pancake breakfast. While they were at camp they dropped off a large donation of paper products, compliments of the Andover Lions. They have been fantastic supporters of camp for many years.
Camp was saddened by the passing of Emil Koval, a long-time supporter of the camp personally, and through his wonderful Marion Sunrisers Kiwanis Club.
Emil was a salt-of-the-earth good person, who would give anyone in need, the shirt off his back. From reading his obituary, he was so much more. He was an extremely gifted individual with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering. He was 29-years at Rockwell as a Mechanical Engineer Manager, who was very involved in the Apollo project. Emil was scheduled to go on the Honor Flight to Washington DC in the coming weeks. Emil was fluent in Czech, Slovak, and Russian languages. A brilliant person, who was as common shoe as they come.
Camp enjoyed another visit with LeRoy Finnegan (R) from Camanche. LeRoy has been delivering wonderful, much needed donations to camp for many years. He introduced his friend Dick Wales (L) to camp on this trip. Camp is very thankful for friends like LeRoy and Dick!
Camp Courageous Travel Campers are currently in Charlotte, NC and having a wonderful time. They are pictured visiting LaserQuest, a laser competition game. At the end of the game, players come out of the room to see who got the most people, Camper Mitchell Martin came out at number 1 and he was very proud. His nickname was “THE BAD GUY!” LaserQuest opened up early to let the travel campers play. It was so nice of them!
