Campfires, Swimming and Friendship

MARBLE HILL, Mo. -- Venturing into the great outdoors several times last month, 31 individuals with developmental disabilities were able to experience the joy of camping from campfires to swimming to learning about various aspects of nature.
Three camping trips were taken by participants of the Outdoor Adventures Program, which is sponsored by the Association for persons with Intellectual Disabilities (AID), in conjunction with VIP. One trip was to Lake Wappapello State Park and the other two were to Arrowhead Campgrounds in Glen Allen. At least two more camping trips are planned before the summer is over.
