This video should help answer that question. Meet a guy that has a kind heart and long list of true friends. He makes you smile just seeing him.
Abner is one of our favorites at Camp ASCCA.
This week is a special one for camp. Throughout the year, we serve a lot of adults with mental disabilities. During the summer, there is one week where many of our regulars attend. Abner is a 10 year regular. This is his 10th Anniversary for attending Camp ASCCA.
All you have to do is watch the video and you’ll understand why so many said, “You’ve got to interview Abner!” His relationship with Nathan, our Head Male Counselor, will make you smile, too.
A little background. Abner is from Bainbridge, GA. He lives independently. Abner is likely as much of a favorite in Bainbridge as he is at Camp ASCCA. A playful and friendly guy, you’ll see that Abner has a kind heart. One comment touched me, in particular.
When I asked Abner what he liked about camp, he said he’d stay here 24/7. He then shares (I paraphrase), “But, you can’t do that. You have to let others have a chance to come here, too.” This is a guy that is remembered by everyone that meets him.
I’m so glad to be able to introduce you to Abner now. The “piggy-back ride” comment at the end is priceless.
