Campers also took part in a baking project and toured the facility, which recently was moved to the Hager Lifelong Education Center. The tour gave past Children’s Learning Center students an opportunity to see the new surroundings and catch up with former teachers. Camp director Jeremy R. Bottorf, who also supplied the photos above, sent out a big “Thank you” to Karen Woland Payne, director of the learning center, for allowing campers to visit, cook and read to children there.
