A Week with Walt: Wednesday 7/8

Today we had Disability Awareness Day! In the morning, the campers went to different stations to learn about different disabilities. The campers tried using wheelchairs, leg splints, cataract glasses, and adaptive cutting boards. We also had a special guest, Mr. Michael, from Paraquad. Mr. Michael showed the campers how to use the wheelchairs and also showed them pictures of adaptive sports for people who use wheelchairs.

After our Disability Awareness Day activities, the campers headed to the kitchen to cook up some Finding Nemo  “Fish are Friends not Food” Baja Tacos. Since fish are friends not food, we made tofu tacos!

Before we ate our lunch, the campers had a discussion with Miss Beth and they answered the question, ” Where does food come from?”

After our delicious lunch, the campers played some games and enjoyed the Frozen yogurt pops they made yesterday! The campers (and counselors) enjoyed listening to some songs from the movie while enjoying these sweet treats!
