El Dona + Mu Aye

El Dona + Mu Aye

El Dona and Mu Aye arrived from Thailand with their families to settle in Akron’s North Hill neighborhood. This summer they spent a week at Camp Christopher making new friends and finding new possibilities.

Far from a refugee camp, Camp Christopher provided these young friends, including Eh Pe, an opportunity to learn through God and by having fun in nature. Their week at camp was filled with new experiences like horseback riding, swimming, hiking, archery, arts and crafts, fishing and canoeing – experiences they would never find at home or school.

Camp Christopher, located in Summit County and serving all of Northeast Ohio, has been making the difference in the lives of children for over 100 years. The camp has made improvements to embrace all children, even those with disabilities, so that campers leave feeling relaxed, free, and with a smile on their face.
