MONTICELLO, IA. As another growing season ends and the fall harvest season begins, Camp Courageous begins a campaign asking for corn and soybean producers to share a small portion of their yield. An easy way to support Camp Courageous and assist those served there, farmers may participate by simply specifying to their granary the bushels of grain they would like to donate.

Camp Courageous is a year-round recreational and respite care facility for individuals with special needs and is run on donations, without government assistance, formal sponsorship, or paid fundraisers. Camp opened its doors in 1974 serving 211 campers. In 2012 nearly 6,500 campers were served.

Grain producers statewide should watch for a post card explaining the camp and how they may participate. For more information contact Camp Courageous at (319) 465-5916 ext. 2140
