CAMP HORIZON HAPPENINGS
Last weekend (November 3-5), we held our annual Ledership Development Program (LDP) Weekend Retreat; our LDP program is an important time for our teen campers as they approach the period in their life where they will have to “age out” of foster care and become fully independent at age 18.
Please mark your calendar for these upcoming Camp Horizon events:
December 2 (11am to 3pm) - Camp Horizon's LDP Gift Wrapping Party! Get in the holiday spirit by wrapping presents (for our younger campers) with our teens, playing games, and enjoying a delicious lunch! Please let our program director Amy Orr (Amy.Orr@camphorizon.net) know if you can help with set-up, clean-up, or transportation from one of the local DFCS offices.
December 8 (7pm-10pm) – Join us for an evening of music at the Camp Horizon Winter Concert held at the First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta. Music provided by Camp Horizon’s own band, The Hug Rounds, and some very talented guests featuring Grammy nominated pianist John Burke and Dane Hildreth. There will be music, camp stories, and a lot of fun. The concert is free, but there is limited seating, so tickets are required and can be reserved by using the link below. We will be accepting donations at the event, all of which will be used to provide more programs for Camp Horizon campers. https://www.eventbrite.com/o/camp-horizon-15672438458
