Boone County Special Needs Summer Camp

The Boone County Special Needs Summer Camp was held last week. Ockerman Elementary hosted the elementary level with music, art, team games, movement and an engineering station. The middle school and high school levels were hosted at Camp Ernst Middle School with music and dance, art, team games, engineering and archery. Peer tutors played a key role in helping to make camp fun for the students. Thirty four peer tutor volunteers from Ryle, Cooper, and Ockerman Middle School generously gave there time to make this a successful event. Teachers and para educators were very instrumental in helping individual students follow routines, and participate in activities and maintain their health care plans.
