Hargrove Engineers + Constructors Teammates served dinner to over 250 campers and staff at Camp Smile on July 17, 2013, to show their support and promote awareness of the United Cerebral Palsy’s mission, which is to empower children and adults with disabilities to live their life without limits by providing an inclusive summer camp experience where there is no limit to the adventure.
The UCP hosts Camp Smile each year to give campers a chance to take part in outdoor activities that many would not be able to do otherwise. Horseback riding, water sports, and the ropes course are all part of the fun, and encourage bonding with others who share similar life experiences.
“The thing that was most touching for me was when Weylan, one of the campers, presented us with a painting of a tree with each of the kids fingerprints as leaves as a thank you. To be part of the evening and seeing the joy in everyone’s eyes was really special,” said Marisa Inge, Hargrove’s Community Projects Coordinator.
Over 25 Teammates took part in this unique team-building experience. After dinner, campers and Hargrove Teammates attended a camp-wide dance, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
