Maren attended Literacy Camp at Camp Courage last summer. Literacy Camp is a collaboration with True Friends, the MN Department of Education and the Center for Literacy and Disabilities Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The program provides professional assistance to students struggling with literacy, while giving them a classic camp experience.
Maren is a senior at Irondale High School and will graduate this spring. Her camp activities include swimming, arts and crafts, archery and her all-time favorite, horseback riding. She most enjoys the campfire and the talent show, when she dances to the song 'Gangnam Style.' One of Maren's favorite memories from camp is swimming in the lake with her friends.
True Friends staff recently attended a Timberwolves game to accept a $5,000 grant from the team's Read to Achieve program. These funds will benefit Literacy Camp. Learn more about this program and see pictures from the check presentation here.
