Sonny’s Character Camp
Sonny’s BBQ and Learning for Life held their 8th annual Sonny’s Summer Character Camp.
The camp was held at Cheney Elementary school for the first time this year, and it was a huge success.
The turnout for the first year at a new location was awesome! There were 26 staff volunteers and an average of 58 campers on campus each day.
We had vendors from all over central Florida, such as, the Orlando Magic, Orlando Psycho City Roller Derby Girls, the C.A.R.E. Foundation, the Orlando Ballet, the Orange County Sherriff’s department, Orange County Fire Department, some E.R. Nurses, Be Fit, Be Cool, the Orlando Philharmonic and of course Sonny’s BBQ, come and teach the campers.
They also learned about different character traits, how it helped these professionals in their career paths, and how to implement it as students. The campers had an opportunity to make homemade lava lamps, GAK, dirt cups, and freedom quilts all in a week’s time. The campers were not ready for the week to be over, and neither was the staff.
Learning for Life would like to thank all of the vendors that came out as well as Sonny’s BBQ. Without your support and help, this camp would not have been the success that it was.
