Jekyll arrives to bail out his ward, and, consequently, getting a little miffed at the attention the reporter is paying to h…

I took the past 10 years off to start my own family. Also I did not help that my camper Steve turned 21 and was to old for camp. In those 10 years Steve and I stayed close we have done Flashback Weekend together as we as Comic Con.

My sister was a big voice in getting back and bring Steve with me as Horizon Camp is for everybody.

Although Horizon has existed for many years, the current organization was formed in 1991 in response to a cut in funding that kept adults with disabilities from attending the M…
