For those of you who read our first newsletter, you know how much we’ve been anticipating the arrival of the families who participate in Camp Soaring Eagle.  And now another exciting gathering has come and gone and we couldn’t feel more grateful or blessed to be a small part of this wonderful organization.

We opened our entire property to children undergoing oncology treatment earlier this month in order to provide for them a memorable summer camp experience; we hosted a variety of activities including archery, Pink Jeep tours, painting, gymnastics, and more.

Please enjoy some of the photo highlights from their stay.

A big thank you to Arizona Sunrays Gymnastics Center who came out and led the children in stretching, spinning, and tumbling.  So much fun!
