Camp-Get-A-Well-A is a much-loved tradition here at Gillette — and this week’s camp, with a “Superheroes” theme, is no exception! The camp, which happens daily from June 23-27, brings the joys and activities of summer camp to hospitalized children.
The week’s first activity for patient campers and their families was decorating a Superhero cape to wear during Superhero Movie Night later in the week. More than 120 capes were created with the help of volunteers from REMAX and KFAN during the Monday morning activity, held in Gillette’s lobby. And a special guest, KARE-TV, was on hand to capture the fun.
KARE-TV’s news segment ran Monday, June 23 during the 6:00 p.m. newscast. Anchors Julie Nelson, Randy Shaver and meteorologist Belinda Jensen had positive things to say about Gillette before and after the segment aired: “When you can’t go to summer camp, summer camp comes to you. It doesn’t get any better than this. I had a chance to tour the facility. It was bright; the staff there has all of this positive energy. Good for them.”
