The #Autism "Camp C.A.N.O.E" @CampFireHOK is Almost Here!!

You might be asking what Camp C.A.N.O.E. is? It's the NEW Autism Camp that was started in 2012 by Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma at Camp DaKaNi. What makes me proud as a parent, and to be involved as a camp counselor during this wonderful day camp, is that Camp C.A.N.O.E. actually stands for "Children with Autism Need Outdoor Experiences"! What I love most is that Camp C.A.N.O.E. offers each of these children the chance to improve fine and gross motor skills, to increase their confidence, self-reliance, to help them to work with others as a team, to solve problems, to strengthen independent thinking, communication and social skills as they make friends...every parent's dream, or at least mine!!
The staff of Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma at Camp DaKaNi have been preparing all year for the 2014 Camp C.A.N.O.E. This will be my third year to work as a camp counselor during Camp C.A.N.O.E. and along side many other awesome volunteers. We will enjoy exploring the thirty-three acres of Camp DaKaNi while learning or perfecting skills such as the zip line, archery, rock climbing, canoeing and fishing. We can't wait until Camp C.A.N.O.E. 2014!! If YOU have a child that might enjoy getting out of the house each day for a FUN-filled week, you will want to check this out before registration closes!

We are always looking for individuals, and companies that will allow their employees, to volunteer during Camp C.A.N.O.E. each year. If YOU are interested in volunteering, or know someone who might want to, please contact Penn Henthorn, the Camp Director, either by calling him at (405)254-2080 or by emailing for more information. 

You can follow me @MissMaryMackOKC and Camp DaKaNi @CampFireHOK for updates. I look forward to hearing from anyone that wants to give me a shout!
