1st Annual REACH-Kids Summer Camp

Camp was as exciting and fun for the staff as it was for the kids. Everyday they played in outdoor water activities, themed crafts, snacks, ice cream, music, movies, Legos, and a Pizza Party to celebrate.  Looking forward to an even bigger Camp experience in 2019.
