Cactus Day Camp

Cactus Day Camp


One of the many things I love about Cactus Day Camp, they never forget a birthday!
Thank you for taking pictures of our children's lost and found. The extra steps you go to are noticed and very much appreciated.
Karyn, I need to acknowledge how amazing you, and all your staff are. Huzzah!!!
Danielle is joining us for her first summer as a Gecko Co-counselor. She is working towards a degree at the University of Arizona in Public Health. Danielle has been a nanny and babysitter and has taught cheer and dance to kids in grades K-8. Danielle has experience volunteering with an equine therapy program for children with autism. Danielle would like to join the Peace Corp after college and eventually hopes to become a nurse.
Justin comes to CDC for his first summer as a Junior Counselor to the Falcons. He is going into his senior year at Stevenson High School in the Chicagoland area. He plays ice hockey and participates in the Best Buddies program working with his peers with special needs. Justin has a bird named Blu and a "Rockin' Aunt Karyn" (his words).
I am trying to contact the director of your camp. If you could have them email me ([email protected]) I would greatly appreciate it!
