Fifteen volunteers from MKSK visited Flying Horse Farms for the first MKSK Day of Service of 2016. Located on 200 acres of land in Mt. Gilead, Ohio, Flying Horse Farms is a non-profit organization that provides a unique camp experience for children with serious illnesses and their families. The team of volunteers spent the day “flipping camp”, both indoor and outdoor, to prepare for the new campers. The facilities and grounds at Flying Horse Farms are designed to accommodate every camper, regardless of any physical limitation. The camp offers many of the activities you would find at a traditional camp such as swimming, boating, fishing, canine therapy, high ropes, and archery, but the equipment and activities have been modified so every camper can participate. Flying Horse Farms staff and volunteers proudly stand by their mission, that if one camper isn’t able to participate, no one is.
"You can see this mission reflected everywhere in the camp’s design. The level of detail is incredible - every aspect very carefully planned to honor and/or conquer any physical or emotional challenges the campers may face,” said MKSK Designer, Courtney Keys. The MKSK team of volunteers was truly impacted by the camp’s power to transform the lives of children with serious illnesses. For more information about Flying Horse Farms, click HERE.
