12 years ago today(I am drafting this the day before, so in case that date is wrong I am meaning Fri., March 22) Camp Craig Allen was founded. If you do not know the story about how this camp was 1st thought of sit back and I will fill you in! There was a young gentleman named Craig Allen Cruzan. When he was around 13 years old he came home from a wk. worth of summer camp through the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He had a form of MD and used a power wheelchair. He had came home frustrated that summer after getting back from camp. He spoke to his little sister Dawn about it. He told her about all week it rained and how there was no accessibility to go anywhere besides stay in his cabin. So he told her that when he gets older he is going to build a camp with complete accessibility and so that any age can come with a physical disability! So right then and there on notebook paper Dawn and him made out the blueprints of what they thought that camp should look like. So they ended up putting the notebook paper away. At 21, Craig aged out of MDA summer camp. At 22, Craig sadly passed away with never getting to see his dream become a reality. Years later Dawn was going through a hope chest she saw the blueprints that her and her brother had made long ago of the camp, and she thought, “I am going to make his dream a reality!” And the rest is history… Camp Craig Allen was founded in 2007 as a 501(c)3 Organization! I get goosies every time I think about that or here the story!Organization ! I get goosies every time I think about or hear this story!
