My boys and I have been looking forward to Camp Noggin 2013 since we found out how much FUN it was at last year's camp! This is an awesome camp where children with autism and their siblings can enjoy a week of day camp, meet new friends and have FUN learning things in an autism-friendly environment. We have a fabulous director and assistant that spend all year preparing the schedule, snacks, activities, awards ceremony and the extraordinary Camp Noggin t-shirt that you see above.
Last Friday's tornadoes tore through at least three counties leaving damages, power outages and took the lives of at least twenty. The one that ripped through El Reno last Friday evening affected families, businesses and nonprofits like El Reno Youth and Family Services where we normally have our beloved Camp Noggin each year. Our wonderful Camp Noggin director, while dealing with no power in her own home, wasted no time in locating another location so that we could provide this long-awaited week of day camp for these special children.
We are very thankful that an area church was gracious enough to host the autism day camp this year but, our spectacular Camp Noggin will be back at the El Reno Youth and Family Services next year, where it belongs. For more information on how the tornado has affected our Camp Noggin sponsor, El Reno Youth and Family Services, please check out their website here. Thank you for taking the time to support and follow our autism journey!
