Acorn Buddies for Ages 16-College
For the spiritually and emotionally mature young adult. You will befriend and give assistance to at least one camper with a disability throughout the week.

It can be challenging, energizing, exhausting, hilarious and wonderful in nearly every way. An orientation/planning session is conducted the day before campers arrive. Space for buddies is limited and dependent on how many campers sign up.
