BRADFORD WOODS — A Camp Inspire counselor described Gabby Tucker as a “chill” girl.
The 14-year-old from New Brighton was one of 20 campers who participated in Camp Inspire at the Woodlands last week, a sleep-away camp specifically for children who have tracheotomies or use ventilators.
It’s among a handful of camps across the country that provide special accommodations for kids like Gabby, who uses a wheelchair and recently had a spinal fusion.
“Rhys said he was inspired to host the camp after taking a Peer Buddies class at Pine-Richland during his freshman year and volunteering at the Woodlands BLOOM Camp last summer. The camp partners volunteers with children with disabilities for a week-long camp experience.”
