Playmakers Foundation Hosts Camp For Kids With Disabilities
July 09, 2021 11:43am
Students from three Siouxland high schools team up with the Playmakers Foundation. It was all to host their first camp-in for kids with disabilities.
Playmakers is a non-profit organization that helps build leadership and character through sports and academics.
Students from MOC-Floyd Valley, Sioux Center, and Sheldon teamed up with kids with disabilities as peer mentors. They taught them skills, ran through drills, and even competed in fun games.
Peer mentor Luke Jeltema, a senior at MOC-Floyd Valley, said he hopes people step out of their comfort zone and help those who need that extra assistance.
He says he can tell they're having fun, and that it brings him joy knowing these kids are having fun and learning new things.
The executive director of Playmakers said it's a chance for all the students to come together and create long-lasting relationships. Forty participants, who registered for the event, plus 35 volunteers, made it happen.
