Christina at Camp Care
Camp Care is a free day camp held twice a year at Crossroads Physical Therapy in Columbia, CT, and features fun and therapy for special needs children and their families. This was our first year to participate, though Gabbi was a volunteer in summer 2010.
One of the highlights of the three day camp is a delicious Turkey Dinner with Santa. Christina was not too sure if meeting Santa was a good idea, and we had never attempted a Santa photo for this reason, but he is very good with our kids and soon talked her into giving him her hand, while remaining on Daddy's lap.
There were many parts of Camp care we enjoyed; the pizza party, Bowling, the Boot Camp,where Christina exercised with the group while we were meeting new parents, the free massage for parents, and especially the beautiful concluding Mass on Sunday, followed by the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
Crossroads is a haven for children with special needs, and their parents. At present, Christina, Gabriela and I are receiving Physical Therapy there and we are very pleased to have found this haven for those who need God's loving touch.
