Featured Story / Testimony

Tim, age 13, and Tom, age 15, are two brothers who have been coming to Camp Meadowlark for a number of years. They enjoy seeing old friends and making new ones. They look forward to the activities, arts and crafts, games, going to new places and especially swimming.

This year their mother contacted the camp director. She said that her boys would be unable to come to camp. They were living on only one income and she couldn’t afford to send lunch for the boys to camp. If the boys went to the sitters, the sitter provided lunch.

Camp Meadowlark doesn’t normally provide lunch to its campers. If they come to camp, they wouldn’t get lunch. The camp director assured their mother that they would get lunch at camp.

Thanks to the help of everyone who supports The Arc of Central Virginia, Tim and Tom were able to come to camp and get lunch.
