Hargrove Engineers + Constructors Serves Up Dinner and Smiles at Camp Smile

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.

Mobile, AL – Hargrove Engineers + Constructors’ Teammates and families visited Camp Rap-A-Hope to support the camp’s vital role in helping children with cancer and cancer survivors by serving dinner to the campers and counselors on the final day of the camp. 

Hargrove Teammates cooked, set up food stations and served the campers, continuing the tradition of providing the Friday evening meal. The volunteers demonstrated Hargrove’s spirit of “giving back to the community in which we live” and enjoyed interacting with the campers.

“We are glad that we could contribute so much to a wonderful cause and really enjoyed spending time with both the campers and counselors,” said Kristen Burchfield, Community Projects Leader.

One of the most memorable moments of the night involved the servers interacting with the campers and trying to get them to eat turnip greens.  Hargrove’s relationship with Camp Rap-A-Hope began about 5 years ago, and the Team looks forward to this event each year.
