In 2022, Aaron’s Acres was excited to return to full day summer camp programming! We were also welcomed by a new community… New Holland! Last year was our first year holding summer camp in New Holland and this year we will be back again. The New Holland community welcomed Aaron’s Acres, its participants and its families with open arms. We made new connections, something very important to the Aaron’s Acres team, and had the opportunity to engage with local community members, businesses and organizations.
We are now preparing for our second summer camp season at New Holland!
We caught up with the New Holland Borough Manager and Administrative Assistant, both who we worked with closely, to hear their thoughts about having Aaron’s Acres at the New Holland Community Pool & Park.
“From a Borough perspective, it is a pleasure to have its Community Memorial Park utilized as the host site for Aaron’s Acres summer camp program. This activity has proven to be a highly worthwhile partnership with Aaron’s Acres as it provides this beneficial activity to those in need from throughout the region.”—Dick Fulcher, Borough Manager
“We are excited to have Aaron’s Acres return to our Park again this year. We were impressed with how Aaron’s Acres’ staff communicated with our personnel. I was able to see many of the different activities which took place and the smiles on the campers’ faces. I was grateful to be able to observe the staff interact, teach and have a one-on-one connection with each camper.”–Paula Walsh, Admin. Asst.
We look forward to another year at New Holland Community Pool & Park and making connections in the local area. Thank you to New Holland for supporting children and young adults with disabilities!
