The girls began their work in June 2011 by learning how the Ronald McDonald House helps sick children when Mrs. Melody Moore visited them at their Scout meeting and told them how the RMH has helped her family as her son battles cancer.

Hundreds of people learned of these girls’ efforts through word of mouth, e-mail and facebook. The girls also started making cards offering words of encouragement to RMH families.

Girls will meet at Camp Low each morning for Paddleboarding Camp. We will provide transportation out to Tybee Island. While on Tybee girls will receive instruction in Paddleboarding. Each day girls will scaffold on what they’ve learned to become proficient at this quickly growing water sport.
Additionally, girls can attempt to paddle-surf once they have become comfortable on the board. The camp will culminate with a special excursion where girls have the opportunity to see dolphins. Included in this camp will be water safety instruction and some education on the ecology of the area. Please pack a sack lunch that girls can bring with them to Tybee each day. Upon the girls’ arrival back to Camp Low we will provide a light snack.
