HORSESHOE – St. George, WV – Seven to twelve year olds describe Horseshoe as awesome with tons of activities like swimming, creek, nature, hiking, sports, arts, library and more and the best food ever!”
Four six day sessions are full of purposeful activity from rise and shine until lights out in the evening.  Home cooked meals served family style are always a highlight everyday.
AmeriCorps member, Kelley Bunner, serving as a camp counselor, describes Horseshoe this way, “There are few places in this world kids can go to and experience such a loving learning environment.  I’m here because I see lives changed – the impression kids get is they are safe here.  I watch campers grow up.  Some of these children say this is the best week of their summer.”
Horseshoe serves statewide and beyond.  For information call 304-478-2481 e-mail horseshoe@yla-youthleadership.org or check out our web page at  www.yla-youthleadership.org/Horseshoe.html
