Why I-95 Drives For Camp Capella, Meet Lisel
Camp CaPella doesn’t have many campers from out of state. But in 2012 a family brought their 10 year old daughter, Lisel, to camp Capella all the way from Ann Arbor Michigan. Lisel was a beautiful 10 year old girl with Cerebral Palsy. She needed total care and support. Upon the week’s end her parents told the camp director that they both were employed by the University of Michigan and had researched the entire USA for a camp who they felt could provide their little Lisel with a summer camp experience. They reported that they had found just 18 summer camps that could do this for their daughter —and they brought her to Camp CaPella!
That’s the kind of wonderful place Camp CaPella is and that the kind of resource we have here for children with many disabilities.
Camp CaPella is a privately funded non-profit that I-95 helps with fundraising whenever we can. Our next event is the I95 Classic Drive and Car Show with Maine Oxy . We’d love to have you with us! Click here to register.
This year Camp CaPella is also looking for Challenge Pacesetter businesses to participate in the LaVerdiere Challenge to allow them to get match funds for your donations so it is a great year to help. Also, on June 27 & 28 I-95 will be having a our CaPellaThon where you can call in and pledge money to help send kids to camp.
