Dani Knitter recently spent a week at Easter Seals Camp ASCCA, Alabama’s Special Camp for Children and Adults. Camp ASCCA offers campers a wide variety of traditional recreational and educational activities with a unique design for accessibility.

 

Camp ASCCA is a favorite project for the Auburn Civitan Club. Each year we provide donations, manual labor, and sponsorships for campers.
