“Camp Smile was started in the early 1960s. This past year we did four weeks of overnight camp with about 180 clients each week. That computes to 180 counselors, because it’s one-on-one. It’s a regular camp. There's horseback riding. There's swimming. The funds from Poarch make it possible for us to reach more children. With the big heart they have, they help a lot of people.”
