Area camp
(Continued from Page I)
the camp aside from providing
new learning experiences, is, "to
get normal kids used to relating
to handicapped kids."
Located on Patterson L a k e
near Pinckney, the camp pro-
vides children with opportunities
to participate in activities such
as hiking, swimming, boating,
camping, canoeing and crafts.
In addition to office personnel
and administrators there are ap-
proximately 50 counselors w-h o
work directly with the campers.
These counselors are usually stu-
dents from the University al-
though some come from as far
away as California and Texas to
work in the camp.
To be employed at the camp the
students must be provided with a
stipend from their University and
from this they must pay t h e i r
room and board.
The counselors' schedule, as
explained by Milburn, approach-
es 24 hours a day. They are re-
quired to begin work at 8:00 a.m.
and continue until at least 9:30
p.m. The counselors also spend
a number of nights each week
sleeping in the cabins with the
children, thus providing 24-hour
As part of the learning exper-
ience the counselors who are Uni-
versity students may elect up to
eight hours credit for their work
at the camp. Counselors are re-
quired to do a certain amount of
reading and attend lecture ses-
sionus as part of their program.

teaches kids
The basic schedule of activi-
ties at the camp is academically
oriented and 1 and one-half hours
of clasroom work per day is re-
quired of all children.
For the classroom work t h e
children are broken down into
four groups according to their
individual learning abilities.
Guiding the classroom work are
four teachers, most of whom are
advanced graduate students. In
addition, the regular counselors
also work with - the children.
Outside of the classroom t h e
counselors work with groups of
children organized in cabins.
During the recreation period the
children can participate in a var-
iety of activities including boat-
ing, swimming, hiking, camping
and crafts.
In operation for over 50 years,
the camp has been a facility for
a wide variety of children.
For some time the camp was
restricted to "school alienated"
boys. A few years ago the pro-
gram was expanded to deal with
various sorts of handicapped
children. Milburn says there is-
also an effort being made to in-
clude "limited experience" child-
ren. This year camp officials
expanded the schedule to include
girls as well as boys during the
six weeks.
The cost for each child to at-
tend one of the -two sessions at
the camp is $240 and attendance
is on a completely voluntary bas-
is. While parents are allowed to
enroll their children, m ost
campers are sponsored by social
service agencies and schools.
The camp accepts only child-
ren in the 6 -12 age group and
has limited facilities. Adminis-
trators can provide space for
only 75 children for each three
week session.

"Hire him. He's got great legs."

If women thought this way about men they
would be awfully silly.
When men think this way about women
they're silly, too.
Women should be judged for a job by
whether or not they can do it.
In a world where women are doctors,
lawyers, judges, brokers, economists, scien-

tists, political candidates, professors and com-
pany presidents, any other viewpoint is ridic-
Think of it this way. When we need all
the help we can get, why waste half the brains
Womanpower. It's much too good to waste.
