Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society to hold Camp Buddy Summer Camps in Chatham & Effingham counties

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Savannah Down Syndrome Support Lowcountry Down Syndrome SocityThe Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) will hold Camp Buddy Summer Camps during Summer 2013. These educational, therapeutic and fun camps run over two weeks in Chatham and Effingham counties.

Chatham Camp Buddy is July 8th, 10th, 12th AND July 15th, 17th and 19th at Marshpoint Elementary School. For children aged 3-6 Chatham Camp Buddy runs from 9 am – 12:30 pm and for those over 6 years of age, it runs from 1- 4 pm.

Geared for children with Down syndrome, Camp Buddy offers educational, therapeutic and recreational activities that are specifically designed with these special kids in mind. Special education, occupational, physical and speech therapists have designed a customized curriculum that helps the children retain, over the summer break, what they worked so hard to accomplish during the previous school year.

This year, Chatham Camp Buddy will include a “preteen” group.

It can be crucial for these kids to not lose momentum when school closes for the summer. Camp Buddy promotes retention of these gains by bridging the summer months and helping prepare the children for the upcoming school year. To date over 40 individuals have attended Camp Buddy, including adults with Down syndrome, who assist the children with camp activities.

The camp is sponsored by the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society and is made possible through the generosity of the community, friends and family of LDSS and events like the Buddy Walk and other fundraisers —requiring participants to pay just $30 for each 5-day camp.

This year’s camp includes music, dance time, arts and crafts as well as bike, trike and scooter board riding. At the camp’s conclusion each camper is sent home with an individualized therapy plan, a medal and wonderful sense of accomplishment achieved through this exceptional day camp experience. Once again, Chef Nick Mueller (Chef Nick Mueller & Company Catering) will be providing hands on food preparation activities with the campers and Armstrong Physical Therapy students are volunteering their time and skills for Camp Buddy.

The seventh annual Buddy Walk for the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society is planned for October 5, 2012 at Forsyth Park. During October, National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, more than 300 Buddy Walks will occur throughout the United States. Last year over 4,500 people came out to support Down Syndrome awareness in the Savannah area. For more information about the Buddy Walk, please contact John or Cindy Bogardus at (912) 728-8505.

About the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society: The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) is a non-profit support group to benefit people with Down Syndrome and their families through local leadership in support, outreach, education and advocacy. Meetings are held every 4th Tuesday of the month, typically with a guest speaker and social time for families to meet and interact with one another. We encourage people to bring their children. We are an affiliate of the National Down Syndrome Society.

How to train your dragon @ Lucas Theatre, SavannahHow To Train Your Dragon @ Lucas Theatre, 32 Abercorn St. Savannah, 31401
7 PM Saturday June 22

Long ago up North on the Island of Berk, the young Viking, Hiccup, wants to join his town’s fight against the dragons that continually raid their town. However, his macho father and village leader, Stoik the Vast, will not allow his small, clumsy, but inventive son to do so. Regardless, Hiccup ventures out into battle and downs a mysterious Night Fury dragon with his invention, but can’t bring himself to kill it. Instead, Hiccup and the dragon, whom he dubs Toothless, begin a friendship that would open up both their worlds as the observant boy learns that his people have misjudged the species. But even as the two each take flight in their own way, they find that they must fight the destructive ignorance plaguing their world. *(Synopsis by Kenneth Chisholm)

Directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders. Animated. Color. 98 mins. Rated PG.
