Asked to express gratitude to those who made Camp Shriver possible this summer, the children responded from the heart and with creativity using words, colors and drawings. Below is a selection of their unique thank you notes.
Sixty-two local children, with and without disabilities, attended the month-long inclusive summer sports camp that develops their motor and social skills while fostering positive peer relationships. Completing its seventh year, Camp Shriver serves children in the eight to 12 age group.
Stonehill students and recent graduates serve as counselor interns and lead counselors, coaches, and co-directors.
