Camp counselors-in-training visit Menlo

Ocean County Donation

During their week at the New Jersey National Guard Youth Camp at the National Guard Training Center in Sea Girt the 29 counselors- in-training in the green t-shirts, made a trip to the Menlo Park Veterans Home. The future camp conselors spent seveal hours, playing bingo, bring residents into the fresh air and just spending time talking to the veterans. The youth camp is open to children and grandchildren of current or retired New Jersey Army or Air Guard members. This year's camp theme was 'Fit For Life' with 122 campers enjoying the ocean, varied activities and learning to better understand what it means to be in a family with a uniformed service member at the 13th annual camp.
