Many of our campers spend very little time away from home and family. To make the transition to camp as easy as possible, each camper’s bed is made up with a handmade quilt and lap blanket, as well a beautiful stuffed turtle pillow. Campers take their lap blankets and turtle pillows home with them as tangible memories of their time at camp.
