Each summer, the Roaring Fork Valley is alive with festivals, live music and activities. The C.A.M.O. summer camps take full advantage of these community-based programs. Re-integration into society is an area of difficulty in recently injured soldiers’ lives, and community-based activities are helping to bridge the gap. Group lunches and dinners allow participants and their families/caregivers to bond and find strength in one another’s triumphs and tribulations.
