DEDHAM, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It will not be long now before adults and kids with developmental disabilities will be able to enjoy the summer camp experience at Camp Capella in Dedham. On Thursday, some of those who have attended or plan to attend the camp are giving back. About seventy five people from Downeast Horizons were at the camp helping to do some spring cleaning and maintenance to get the camp ready for the season. For the staff and participants of Downeast Horizons, which is a program that serves those with developmental disabilities, it's an opportunity to give back.
"(I'm) Raking weeds," explains volunteer Jason Delzeol, a member of Downeast Horizons.
Executive Director of Downeast Horizons Tony Zambrano says this camp cleanup day is a great way to give back.
"A lot of the time these individuals are seen as receiving services from society, today they're turning the tide, they give back and they're so happy and so thrilled to do this," explained Zambrano.
Camp Capella is located on Phillips Lake in Dedham. It is now accepting applications for summer camp.
