Lake Jacomo Reflection

Imagine a place where girls with physical disabilities can enjoy the resident camp experience - sleeping in a tent, singing around the campfire, swimming in a wheelchair-accessible pool, and, most importantly, forming friendships that last a lifetime. Now imagine a place where YOU make it all possible - bringing joy to these campers, learning what it takes to work in a disability-related field, and forming bonds that you will forever remember. That place is Juliette Low Camp, in beautiful Lake Jacomo, Missouri, where more than 100 girls with physical disabilities and their friends join together with 28 teen Girl Scouts, ages 15-18, from throughout the U.S. for an unforgettable experience.

During each camp session, you will provide the campers with the opportunity to enjoy swimming, songs, games and campfires. You will also assist/take care of the campers' dressing, feeding, personal care, and transportation around the camp (wheelchair power!). From opening day to the closing campfire, you will have the chance to provide a summer of memories for a special group of young girls.

Girl Scouts of NE KS & NW MO is currently recruiting camp counselors for their destinations event, and they need your help!  
  
Counselors should be at least 15 years old by July, 2011.
 
Anyone interested please contact Carol Solenberger, or send the application by e-mail or mail to the address below by January 31, 2011.
