This semester, Patty Hanks Shelton School of Nursing students began volunteering with Camp Able, a therapeutic riding nonprofit in Buffalo Gap. Camp Able has long offered programs to middle school and high school students in Clyde and Jim Ned. This year, Camp Able began offering a group session for young adults with special needs. To accommodate this growth, Camp Able developed a partnership with Patty Hanks.
“We are so grateful for [the nursing students’] commitment to participating in Camp Able’s therapeutic riding programs for people with special needs and look forward to seeing them each week during the Fall sessions,” expressed Camp Able on their Facebook page. “Thank you all!”
The new riding groups meet every Tuesdays during the fall. The nursing students who assist at Camp Able went through orientation to prepare them to assist the young adults with whom they work.
