MONTICELLO, IOWA - Camp Courageous of Iowa, a year-round respite care and recreational facility for individuals with special needs, will be hosting their 33rd annual Holiday Parties for students in special education classes. The parties will be held on Wednesday, December 2 and Thursday, December 3 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM.
Special education classes are welcome to attend this event and enjoy all camp has to offer - swimming, the rock climbing wall, crafts, games, and a movie, for no cost. In addition, Santa and Mrs. Claus are expected to make an appearance. Refreshments will be provided, and groups are welcome to bring lunch to enjoy after the party.
Throughout the year, Camp Courageous hosts a variety of events for individuals in special education classes. These events are often very memorable for and cherished by the students. In a thank you letter, one special education teacher remarked, "The children talk about this event all school year long." Furthermore, Camp Courageous also hosts events for adults.
The annual adult holiday party will be held on Thursday, December 3 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM. Besides refreshments, guests can enjoy a performance from The New Horizons Brass Band and a gift from Santa and Mrs. Claus. Camp Courageous is looking for more donations of wrapped gifts.
