Camp Courage


Health and Human Services is the newest facet, a part of National Trends and Services until 2010.

For approximately five years starting in 1994, Links members from the local chapter sponsored a weeklong summer camp for children with sickle cell disease, with an emphasis on youth with African ancestry. The program widened awareness of the needs and opportunities for these children.
