Breakfast for Camp Hope

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) ­-- For one local organization, serving breakfast has funded $3,000 for its cause.

The ASPIRE Therapeutic Horse Riding Cowboy breakfast proceeds will go to camper scholarships.  This will reduce the cost of the camp to the campers.

Camp Hope is a day camp in the 1st week of August that works to integrate campers with and without disabilities.

"It gives them opportunities they wouldn't normally get if they didn't participate in Camp Hope so it gives them a sense of belonging, a sense of there's no judgment. So they're able to interact with other with out other people making fun of them," Executive Director Marilyn Moore said.

The 50 campers will go horseback riding, play sports and visit Lost Island.
