Local Lions taking camp applications
Applications for a summer vacation full of fun for special needs youth in Richland Parish are now being accepted by members of the Delhi Lions Club.
The Louisiana Lions Camp is located north of Leesville and will open Sunday, May 31, 2009.
There will be a one-week session for youth with pulmonary disorders; two one-week sessions for the mild mentally challenged ages 8-9; two one-week sessions for youth with diabetes, ages 6-14; two one-week sessions for vicual, hearing, and orthopedically impaired youth, ages 7-19.
There is no cost to the parents for the campers’ stay. All requests for summer camp are handled locally by Lions and each applicant requires Lion sponsorship.
