The business raised $1,368 to send 9-year-old Brendon St. Amand to camp.
St. Amand, who has Autism, said he is thrilled to return to Camp Capella this year, "because I have fun with new friends, rowing on the boat, and swimming."
He said his goal for this year is to ride in a kayak.
"The camp couldn't exist without Miller Drug and other companies and other individuals," said Camp Capella Executive Director Dana Mosher.
"It's memories for a lifetime," said Mosher. "That's what this is all about."
