S’mores And More At Camp Wright For Talbot Mentors

Talbot Mentors students, their family members and mentors recently were treated to a special Camp Night, courtesy of Camp Wright in Stevensville.

“I had heard from several of our mentees that they had never made s’mores,” said Jessika Best, Talbot Mentors’ Program Coordinator. Camp Wright Director Dee Zeller and her staff invited the Talbot Mentors group to their facility, and provided a fun-filled evening of s’mores and more.

Camp Wright is one of many local and regional facilities to which Talbot Mentors helps send its students for summer camp experiences. This was an opportunity for families and mentors to join the students in a sampling of camp activities.

More than two dozen Talbot Mentors kids and adults traveled to Stevensville for Camp Night, with transportation provided by the Camp Wright staff. The evening included archery, games and team-building exercises, followed by dinner, s’mores and stories around the campfire.

“We work closely with Camp Wright and send several mentees each year to its residential summer camps,” noted Best. “It really is a wonderful place and the counselors do a great job. We cannot thank Dee and her staff enough for this opportunity to share a taste of that experience with more of our Talbot Mentors family.”
