Camp K

Alec had a blast last week at Camp Kostopulos (Camp K)!  It is a camp for individuals with disabilities that he has gone to every year (except 1) since he was 8 years old.  At first, we just did the residential camp.  That means the campers stay at Camp K all week.  They do the ropes course, swim, ride horses, play on the playground, fish, do crafts, etc.

The last couple of years Alec has done the Salt Lake Travel Trip.  This means he spends the nights in the cabins at Camp K but during the day he does fun activities around the Salt Lake Valley.  On Monday they went to Hogle Zoo and took a drive up to Snowbird.  On Tuesday they toured California Pizza Kitchen and got to make their own pizzas.  Then they went bowling and to the Museum of Natural History and then finished out the day by going swimming.  Wednesday they went to Willow Farm to see all the farm animals and historic equipment.  Afterwards they went to the Living Planet Aquarium.  That night they watched the fireworks from Sugar House Park.  On Thursday they went to the Hill Aerospace Museum, then to Antelope Island, and then to Hollywood Connection for rides and mini golf.  Friday was mostly closing social and awards ceremony because we pick our campers up at 11:30 am.  Alec had a great time!

This year we are going to try something new.  Alec is going for a 2nd week and this time he is doing an actual travel trip.  He will be going to Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park.  I know they are planning a river rafting trip and some hiking.  It will be fun to see how he likes this camp in just a few more weeks.
