camps for children ages 6 to 21 years old with the support of the United Way.

educational and recreational, including visits to historical sites, behind the
scenes tours of their favorite stores, and bowling. A volunteer can sign up for just one week,
certain days, or all summer. The Life without Limits Camp meets at the
