Flu shots will be provided at all three locations for those interested.  We anticipate up to 15 children at the combined sites to be in attendance.


Students and college staff are most definitely invited to attend the camp visits.  There will be a sign in sheet for those that attend.  All attending will have to provide their own transportation.  Students can assist in handing out supplies brought by organizations to workers.  If they were willing, they would also be welcome to interact with the children (games, etc).
