Senior Gina Muhs Volunteers at Camp Fatima
Island Trees High School would like to congratulate senior Gina Muhs for successful volunteering at Exceptional Citizens' Week at Camp Fatima this past August.
Exceptional Citizens' Week is a one week overnight camp for individuals with significant physical and/or mental challenges. This past summer there were 173 campers. Staffed by volunteers like Gina, this one week program provides a full camping experience for our special campers. Each camper is assigned their own counselor for the entire week. Activities include swimming and boating, horseback riding, arts and crafts, sports, and nightly theatre. A volunteer support staff assures that the camp and all of the activities runs smoothly.
All funds needed to run the week long camp are raised by the volunteers themselves or through generous donations from individuals and businesses.
All volunteers must remain at the camp for the entire week. It is estimated that Gina volunteered more than 100 hours of time during her week at EC Week. This was Gina's first year volunteering and she can't wait to return next August.
Congratulations to Gina!
