Big Brothers Big Sisters is sending twelve kids to camp this summer.

Tim Horton’s is providing the chance for six students to go to their adventure and leadership camps in Kentucky and Canada. The rest of the children will be attending a camp hosted by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office with help from local law enforcement.

" The cool things with the Bagdes for Baseball Camp is once they get to Maryland, they are basically decked out with their baseball equipment and baseball uniforms for five days of fun, games and activities and baseball instructions." said Mollie Crooks, Director.

Crooks says that these children currently have not found matches in the program and these camps give them a chance to experience something new and exciting.

" Many of them have probably never been out of Muskingum County so just the opprtunity for them to experience that big wonderful world that’s out there in both instances these camps will allow the kids to meet with people from all over the country," said Crooks.

Big Brothers Big Sister’s is always looking for community partners and encourages businesses to call in with other enrichment ideas for the children in the program.
