It was a great summer and we would like to take the time to acknowledge and congratulate all of our 2018 5th-year campers! This summer’s 5th-year campers participated in different camp sessions in Wyoming, Florida, California, North Carolina, and Belize! In the spring we upgraded our 5th– year alumni pole and were able to add all of the new names to it. In total, we are celebrating eight awesome campers and their achievements with SOAR. Becoming a 5th-year camper is a big deal at SOAR! Not only do they get added to the alumni pole, but they get recognized at the first campfire and receive a 5-year pendant. It has been a pleasure to watch these campers grow with us, and we look forward to many more years to come! Here is to your dedication, leadership, and having fun with us for five summers! THANK YOU- we are very proud!
