Camp Argo, a new program at Camp Cedarcrest In Orange, which serves all children, including those with special needs, welcomed a couple of adorable visitors on Friday, July 28.
Maryellen Holden and her daughter Katherine, a recent college graduate, from Buttermilk Lane Farm on Garden Road in town, brought two 2-month-old goat kids (Laverne and Shirley) to meet the campers.
Camp counselors, including Denise Fantarella sat on the ground with the babies, surrounded by a circle of excited campers, who politely waited for his or her turn to come up and pet the goats.
This was a delightful experience for all of the children and the goats were so well behaved too.
Camp Argo has one more week long session this summer, and 2017 was so successful that the camp will be back again in 2018. Keep this program in mind when making summer plans for your children next summer.
