Maplewood Rotary made its second annual donation this year to Camp Maple - a six-week program offered to children with special needs who reside in Maplewood and South Orange. The program, run by the Maplewood Recreation Department, provides opportunities for gross and fine motor development as well as cognitive and social growth. Bowling, swimming, a visit to the zoo, and Imagine That are among the field trips the kids enjoy. The program costs $600 and is based at Tuscan School in Maplewood. The program is headed by George Rague, Director of Recreation & Cultural Affairs and Noelle Stewart-Sullivan.
On Thursday, July 29th, Christian Quaritius, Carol Gilligan, Caroline Gosselin and Noah Miller of the Maplewood Rotary Club spent time with the camp, as the children enjoyed pony rides in Memorial Park.
