On Tuesday, campers spent the day at GAIN (Global Aid Network) in Mount Joy organizing blankets and assembling “Gospel Bead” bracelet kits.

Acts of Kindness provides community service opportunities during which campers venture into the community and participate in service projects as typical teenagers might do.
They provide services to local organizations during which they are exposed to various age-appropriate work assignments while supervised by professional staff including special education teachers, occupational therapists, social workers, and undergraduates from local collages.
