Reminiscing about building a boat

Amaya, Derek.jpg

I never deep-sea fished and couldn’t tell you how to paddle a boat. My only experience as a sailor was playing Battleship as a child.
But be it as it may, my best friend and I dedicated a solid portion of our junior year of high school to refurbishing a pirogue and we never looked back.

Hero’s Launch has been called a wonder piece of functional art.
Those words rang throughout Camp Alabama from Caleb Seney, director of MedCamps of Louisiana.
“The first camp we have planned this year will be about 30 kids with cerebral palsy,” Seney said. “We will be able to take them from their wheel chairs, place them in the canoes and launch them into the water.”
The Presbytery of the Pines Camp Alabama has been having camps on their grounds for almost 60 years, then in 1990 MedCamps came into the picture bringing special needs children to the camp.
