Introducing Brandon

Greetings from Camp New Hope!  We awoke with FROST on the pumpkin for the second day!  Fall is in the air!

We would like to introduce our guest for this week.  Brandon is 15 years old and has Battens.  Brandon is also blind and has seizure disorder.  Brandon loves MONSTERS and scary things.  He is so excitable and his bubbly personality is contagious.  He has loved riding the Kubota and knows how many bumps there are going up Mountain Top Road.  He wants to try everything we have to offer here and wants to go fishing today.  We are praying he will catch a fish but if not by nature you can be sure there will be one on the end of his line by the end of the day.  Sometimes we have to sneak and put a fish on the line ourselves.  We just want him to experience what it feels like to reel one in.  Please pray for Brandon as he will be returning to the school for the blind after he leaves here.

As most of you know we lost Samuel a little over a week ago.  We are cutting a new trail in his honor and Samuels Circle is almost completed.  We will send out pictures soon.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers for Camp New Hope.  Thank you as always to Will and Mark Adkins who make this camp possible.

Greetings from Camp New Hope!  It is a beautiful day here at the camp.  Attached you will see pictures of Brandon and Will Adkins from yesterday and also from Ranger Jeff who came and gave his presentation about the native animals.  Thank you Jeff for taking time and patience with Brandon.  When you are blind it really means a lot to have someone who will let you experience things you would never be able to otherwise.  Thanks to all of our Rangers.  Today we will be taking Brandon fishing and we know he will catch a FISH!

Meet Cody

Greetings from Camp New Hope!  Meet Cody from Baltimore, Maryland!  Cody is 12 and has Battens disease and is here this week with his Dad, 2 sisters and a  brother.  We had a full day today.  Cody could not find his birdhouse that he made a few years ago and he made another one today and found the same tree he had hung it on before and so now his new birdhouse has found its proper place.  Even though Cody is blind he loves riding on the trails and he plays a mean game of air hockey. 

Thank you to Brick Stone Pizza who donated pizza to Cody and his family and to Good Ole Days for donating ice cream to Cody and his family. 
Thank you to Alan for helping Cody with his first horse ride and to Ernie for allowing Cody to drive his tractor and then we all went on a Hay Ride without the hay!  All this the first day at Camp New Hope and Cody wants to do it all! 

Please pray for this special little boy, there is no cure or treatment for Battens but miracles happen everyday and who knows God may have a cure just around the corner.  We can always pray for that!

Thank you for your prayers and financial support for Camp New Hope.

A special thank you to Randy Miller Lumber for donating wood and to Skyline for the poles we need.  Thanks to Neal and Rudy for working so hard also.

God bless you all in a very special way!
