This summer was my first summer with the program and also my first time having the pleasure of becoming friends with young adults with Down syndrome. I volunteered as an EMT on the Medical Staff for both Camp PALS Maine and Camp PALS Georgetown, and it changed my life forever!
I was a counselor at Camp PALS New York for a week at the end of July. For me, the camp was the best of my week of my summer and my year. I had so much fun being with the campers and getting the chance to experience New York City with them!
Our DC Adventure!!
Our adventure in Washington D.C. is a FIRST time adventure for PALS! We are looking forward to having 15 pairs share the joy of the District of Columbia together! We have so many fun plans in progress for roaming our nation’s capital including (but not limited to) a Washington Wizards NBA game, checking out cool, historic museums including the National Air and Space Museum, a private night stroll by trolley around the city to see all of the monuments, a fancy dinner in the heart of D.C., and much more! We are so excited to be in the planning process for this Adventure, and we cannot wait to share this weekend with our participants!
