Grant supports Camp Fish Tales

MIDLAND DAILY NEWS Camp Fish Tales recently received a grant from Hasting Mutual. The grant will go toward purchasing a golf cart at Camp Fish Tales in Pinconning to help campers move around the camp. “All of our campers have a physical and/or developmental disability and before accepting a camper we make sure that we can adequately meet their needs,” said Karl Ieuter, president of Camp Fish Tales Board of Directors. “It is often difficult for families to find an overnight recreational facility that can provide for their loved ones with disabilities, but with our highly trained and dedicated staff providing 24 hour care, Camp Fish Tales strives to accommodate any disability while creating a safe and healthy environment where physically challenged campers get to meet and make new friends while participating in group growth activities.”
