About Timber Pointe:
Timber Pointe, which is owned by Easter Seals, provides special needs and inclusive camp sessions for children and adults ages 7 and up. Campers participate in traditional camp activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, arts & crafts, target sports, music, and horseback riding. It is an experience of outdoor life for kids and adults whose health issues make these activities often seem impossible. To help support Timber Pointe, all participants are asked to make a donation to the camp for the day. Any amount is welcome, though at least ten dollars is encouraged!
p.s. Thanks so much to the 54 participants at ABC #118 for all the fun, food, and your $2,420 in donations to The Baby Fold.
That put us over $100K for all 118 ABC runs! Stay tuned for announcements about a t-shirt to celebrate this milestone!
