LSC-Tomball Students Assist MS Campers at Camp Can Do

Published on: June 08, 2011

In their mission to help change lives, members of the Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) at Lone Star College-Tomball assisted campers with multiple sclerosis (MS) at Camp Can Do, held May 13-15 in Burton.

Camp Can Do provides a safe and relaxing environment for persons with MS. Campers enjoy horseback riding, canoeing, fishing, swimming, dancing, yoga, nature walks, a rope course, arts and crafts, group games and campfires. The camp has a “no-family policy” so families and caregivers can enjoy a short vacation as well.

The 21 SOTA students dedicated themselves to the Camp Can Do guests over the three-day weekend, ensuring they could participate in all of the activities and events. Both campers and aides had fun. To add to the fun, Camp Can Do promoted a “cops and robbers” theme, and the SOTA “task force” dressed as members of a police SWAT team.
