DODGE POND SUMMER CAMP ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS NOW

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Arc Jefferson - St. Lawrence New York (www.thearcjslc.org), is now accepting applications for the children’s Summer Camp at Dodge Pond in Fine, N.Y. The Rotary Clubs of St. Lawrence and Jefferson Counties sponsor this wonderful vacation so that it may be offered to children with disabilities ages 8 through 21 for free of charge.

This year, the Jefferson County Week will be held from July 22nd to the 27th and the St. Lawrence County Week is from July 29th to August 3rd. To register, contact Joe Montgomery at 315-848-2336 soon as spots fill up quickly.

Dodge Pond Summer Camp is owned and operated by The Arc Jefferson – St. Lawrence specifically for young people with disabilities. Their highly-trained staff supports individuals to have a safe outdoors experience following Department of Health regulations. During camp, young people enjoy campfires, swimming, hikes, crafts, games, boat rides, and lots of fun with friends.

Each year, Rotarians from both counties work on a project to enhance the experience at Dodge Pond. These additions are made possible because of a coordinated effort to obtain a district grant from Rotary International. This year’s project was a patio and fire pit on the beach.

To learn more about The Arc Jefferson - St. Lawrence, visit www.thearcjslc.org or visit the Facebook page. An application for camp is located at slnysarc.org/dodge-pond or call 315-848-2336.
