Summer Camp Opportunities!

    As Summer approaches, many of you already know of the camps AOP is offering to kids throughout the summer. We also need volunteers to help with the various camps and a program we are calling Art Nibbles. This program will allow campers to have both breakfast and lunch for camps, as well as make food available to under served children in our area. Along with the food we will be offering a fun daily art project to the kids as well. We need some dedicated volunteers to help make this happen. If you are interested in helping with Art Nibbles, please contact Crystal at and let your availability be known. Summer camps are also a great way to offer scholarships to children who may not have the means to pay for the camps and want to attend. If you are interested in sponsoring a child for camp please let us know.
