A Typical Week at the AOP Summer Camp!
Day One: Straight off the bus, and ONTO THE BOATS! Located on the
Day Two: This was our first chance to get the campers up on the horses. For some of the returning children, this was not their first time, but for our new campers, this was very exciting!

Day Three: Tonight is the BONFIRE! On the shore of the
Day Four: Time to sit down for a presentation about better nutrition from a professional chef. Get to taste some healthy alternative snacks while learning about the benefits of eating right and staying active!
Day Five: As our trip is coming to a close, we go on a nature walk. As we come to the forks in the trail, we ask the children to tell us which fork they want to take: college? Get a good education? Have goals? OR party? Give up on ourselves? Drugs or alcohol? Thankfully, most of them already have goals, want to get a good education, and are looking to college.
Day Six: Home to share their camp experiences with family and friends!
