Lions Clubs ‘Camp Leo’ seeking counselors for special needs campers

The Lions and Lioness Clubs of Southwest Michigan are now signing up counselors for Camp Leo, an overnight summer camp experience for children, ages 10 through 17, with developmental disabilities who live in Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties. The Lions Club says they’re looking for adult camp counselors as well as high-school students to serve as junior counselors. Volunteers are also welcome.
