Exciting News! This year, FACES board member, 22-year-old Ryan Vargas, a professional race car driver for NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will visit FACES Camp on July 12 to spend the day with the campers.

 

Vargas was born with Coronal-Synostosis craniosynostosis, a premature fusion of one of the coronal sutures of his skull, which caused parts of his head to be flat, as well as a raised eye socket. At eleven months he underwent corrective surgery and now has his “lightning bolt” scar to show off

for it. He will share his NASCAR racing gear, stories, and his inspiring message that having a facial difference does not prevent you from living your dreams.

Camp Theme Nights: 

Skit nights, counselor hunt, carnival night, special night

nature hike, sports night, capture-the-flag, international

folk dance, and campfire programs.

For end of the night activities, we rotate the boys and girls between campfire or pool party. One night, the boys will have a campfire and roast marshmallows, while the girls go to the pool, and the next night we will switch.

 

 

A Typical Day at Camp

Sunday night is activity sign up. Each camper selects a schedule of 6 daily activities based on individual
