Life is full of choices. “The greatest power that a person possesses is the power to choose.”J. Martin Kohe

C.H.O.I.C.E camp is designed to help children from 2nd grade level to seniors in high school to effectively deal with life’s disappointments and frustrations they will encounter. Our focus is to help a child understand life and how the choices they make effects their lives, and they alone have the choice to change their own destinations and to own responsibility for their future.

Our camp is to be held outdoors, weather permitting in The Richards Park at Brady, Texas. VFW building is the backup plan. Both camp counselors facilitating the camp believe that healing and learning while having fun in the great outdoors is the quickest remedy; if only we all would stop long enough to enjoy what is given to us freely by nature. We invite children to come and have fun learn coping skills on the following Saturdays, May 4, May 11, May 18th. The morning session is from 9-12 for 2nd graders to 12 years of age. The afternoon session is from 1-4 for 13 years of age to seniors in high school. We are an independent organization and encourage anyone to attend whether in school or not. Parents or guardians are asked to stay after registration for a fifteen minute orientation to learn what ideas will be taught for the day and how they can implement these in their home. Registration begins at 8:45 for morning session and 12:45 for afternoon session.

The following is the outline of subjects to be addressed on the specified dates:

May 4th-Self Esteem/Grief/Coping Skills

May 11th-Trust and Respect

May 18th-Who Am I?/Future Goals

The sessions may be attended individually per Saturday; they are designed to build up to the final session of future goals to receive the greatest benefit. Price is 30.00 per session .Checks or cash will be accepted.

There are opportunities for the community to help out. For more information contact us a Or contact us by phone; Jackie Marks @ 325-656-0423 or Amber Hunt @ 575-318-3218
