One Week Away From Fun!

Let the countdown begin! We are officially one week away from Camp Shriver Magnolia being held in Jefferson Parish (September 2-5).

Camp Shriver bringcs by unified3s together people with and without intellectual disabilities for training and competition each summer.  The primary goals are to provide another level of challenge and promote inclusion.  Camps take place in many cities throughout LA.  Camp Shriver will in many, if not most, cases, help supplement on-going local community school activities.

Camp Shriver is, and will continue to be, a place for people with intellectual disabilities to learn new sports skills and improve individual sport performance, participate in individual and team sports, build friendships and have fun with partners who have signed on and trained as camp volunteers.

This camp will feature athletes from the Magnolia Community Center and the Greater New Orleans area. Athletes and Volunteers will paticipate in Kickball, Bocce, and Horseshoes. 

We would also like to say a HUGE thank you to the volunteers from the Ritz Carlton New Orleans!

We can’t wait to see you there!
