I thought you all might be interested in seeing how we can make a difference. This is a note I received from Teri, Carlos’ teacher consultant:
Carlos had a great time. That was the first time in his life roasting marshmallows. He had such a big smile on his face telling me about the scavenger hunt and the fire and what not. It is so heartwarming to see how these things make him so happy!
Thanks for all you do for Carlos and the others.

In addition, I saw Cindy today and she described his reaction to seeing marshmallows roasted over a fire: it was more than just a smile–he was incredulous.
Carlos is a wonderful young man who is, as yet, undiscovered. I’m so glad we are able to include him in our activities as I know he has much to offer the world around him.
Thank you, camp counselors.
Thanks to Martha and Cathy for all of their hard work creating a “Camp” for the Cool Cats (and friends, we had four other students from the G.R.O.D. program: Brija and Megi DeMeester who go to Eastside Christian, Zedin Kujovic goes to FH Central, and Christopher goes to FH Eastern)!! Thank you to Pat for hosting and taking the photos and to Diane, Maureen, Kathy and Heather who all came out to be Quota Counselors!!
Here are a few pictures from Winter Camp.
