Monserrat Makeover Update

WOW. Your jaw will drop when you see the amazing makeover the Volunteer section of camp has had! After a hard day work, supporting young people with disabilities, we felt our volunteer's deserved their bedrooms and bathrooms to be updated. Add in a new garden,complete with pizza oven and BAM! Looking great. Thanks community outreach team from LSC&PH!!
