There are only 47 days until camp, but before then we have one of our biggest fundraisers, and you won't want to miss it. Horizon's Annual Golf Outing and Banquet is coming up on June 11, so get your clubs out of storage! There will be a live band at the banquet and lots of raffles to win awesome prizes!
June is our month of orientations and interviews for new campers and volunteers, it is also the month of the highly anticipated acceptance packets. Once again we are extremely short male volunteers for our week of camp. Not having a volunteer for a camper delays the acceptance process and causes us to put campers onto our wait list. If you can volunteer please
apply today. You won't regret the impact you will have by sharing this magical week with one of our campers.
Camp Needs Your Help
Camp will be here before you know it and as always, it's 100% free for everyone. You can be a superhero by contributing money or supplies from the camp wish list.

Horizon Highlight: Terry Smith
Terry Smith got involved with Horizon through MDA camp. She went to the MDA telethon with some friends and then attended their camp for eight years before Horizon was started. She has attended Horizon Camp for the past 24 years and is looking forward to the "Super 25". Terry loves making new friends every year and hopes to see many of her old friends back at camp this year. "I consider Horizon as an extended family. When I walk into camp I feel like I'm walking into a family reunion."

At camp, she has been a Team Leader and on the support team. She is currently on the Recruitment Committee and does presentations at high schools such as Lincoln Park.
