GLADWIN – At a recent meeting of the Gladwin Kiwanis Club, Shannon Forshee updated the club on the work of Camp Fish Tales near Pinconning. This camp serves children, youth and adults with special needs from all over Michigan. It is a year-round independent non-profit camp, conference and retreat center. It is especially known for providing an experience that is safe, fun and includes most the activities that would be found at any summer camp. The camp is barrier-free and wheelchair accessible. Campers can develop skills that enhance their health, abilities, independence, and quality of life.
Camp Fish Tales began from a dream of a father that wanted his special needs son to have a summer camp experience just like any other child might experience. His vision grew and became a reality. Learn more about Camp Fish Tales online at campfishtales.org.
Because Kiwanis Clubs focus on the needs of children and youth, they celebrate the vital service this camp provides for this geographical area.
The club meets on the first and third Wednesdays a noon at the Riverwalk Grill. For more information contact: Duane Miller at 989-802-2024 or visit facebook.com/KiwanisClubofGladwin.
