Third Annual Camp Catalyst is a Success

For the third year in a row, New Hope’s Camp Catalyst was a success! During this weeklong summer camp experience, campers learn to be catalysts for change in their communities who can redefine what it means to have a disability or be a friend to someone with a disability – all while having TONS of fun!

At this year’s camp, we hosted 12 campers with and without disabilities. Each day’s activities were centered around the day’s theme. Monday was Beach Day which included a water balloon fight, giant bubble making, giant ‘beach’ volleyball and a sponge relay. Tuesday was Comics Day. They started the day by making some superhero slime. Then, they made superhero shields out of frisbees. They also created their own skits by selecting items out of a skit box.

Wednesday was Olympics Day. In the spirit of the Olympics, they ran relays and played other sports. They also made origami Olympic bracelets, did an Olympic flame STEM activity and tie dyed ‘team’ t-shirts. Thursday was Wild Wonders Day. During this day, campers did science experience and animal-themed activities. The grand finale of the week was Carnival Day. Campers were treated to snow cones and popcorn, and they played Minute to Win It games. They also did karaoke and had a talent show.

As you can see, campers had an activity-packed experience at this year’s Camp Catalyst! We can’t wait to see what next year’s camp holds!
