    Contact: Karlyn Gehring - - karlyn.gehring@associationofhorizon.org

    What: This organization is a non-profit dedicated to breaking down boundaries between those with and without physical disabilities.  At camp, volunteers ages 16+ are paired one-on-one with adult campers with physical disabilities for a week of recreation and learning from one another. Student volunteers develop responsibility and leadership. For me, the communication and community-building skills I developed at camp also helped prepare me for my first jobs and my direction as I entered college.
