Camp New Friends

So....I just found out that I will be spending this summer working at Camp NF (well for one week anyway).....I'm a teacher so I try to keep myself busy during the summer---just thought I would share and ask if anyone else out there will be working there as well!?!?!

My son has been to Camp New Friends for the past 3 years and LOVES it! I have been involved with the camp since it's inception 7 years ago. Thank you so much for spending your time there. I hope you'll find it to be a very memorable and rewarding week.

For more info see: www.brainycamps.com or www.nfmidatlantic.org

The date for camp this year is July 18-24, 2010 in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Full and partial scholarships may be available and Angel Flight MAY be able to help with travel arrangements, BUT you must register SOON!
