I wanted to send you some pictures that I took today at the Cook Out for Fishing Camp at Hubbard Park last Friday.Jack and Kim do such an amazing job with all of the kids and everyone had a really nice time.

Thanks for everything you do for Aidan and all of the campers. I asked Aidan this week on a scale of 1 to 10, how would he rate Mountain Mist Camp....and he said '15'....so he loves it like always. And I have gone thru a bottle of Spray-N-Wash which is a sure sign that he is loving every minute of it. Thank you again and I'll see you some time over the summer." - Lisa Pelletier
