Rotary Week at Wonderland Camp

Thank you to all the clubs and members who contributed to Wonderland Camp during Rotary Week and throughout the year. Whether items were from the Wish List, money, sponsoring a camper or donating time at the camp – it ALL was greatly appreciated. Mark your calendar so next year you can go and see for yourself the wonderful work Wonderland Camp does.

The Camdenton Rotary Club sent a couple of volunteers the morning of July 29th to help with the camp. They assisted with the shooting range where the campers were shooting BB guns at balloons filled with paint. How much more fun could it be! They enjoyed their morning helping with that. Hours of service would have been 6 total for the club.

From the Columbia-Metro Club, Doug Shull took his wife and youngest daughter on Wednesday, July 30. They helped with Crafts in the afternoon, and then walked around the camp and visited campers.

The Warrensburg Rotary Club attended Wonderland Camp on Thursday July 31. Six members attended. They included Buzz Herman (President) Jerry Franklin(Past District Governor) Mark Pearce (Past District Governor) John Yost (Past President) Roary Hutt (Service Chairman) and Ken Messer (Past District Governor) They toured the facilities, helped the campers fish and has lunch with them and presented them with a check for $650 to sponsor a camper.

The Jefferson City West Club helped make tie-Dye t-shirts for about 30 camp participants as well as delivered about $250 worth of donated supplies from members of the club. The club members that visited Wonderland Camp really had a great experience. In fact this club has decided one of their service projects is going to be to sponsor at least one camper next year.

The Pulaski County and Rolla Breakfast Clubs sent supplies to Wonderland Camp.
