Make Fidget Quilts for Special Needs Students

We currently have 30 kits, plus instructions, for anyone who would like to make some of these 22″ square fidget quilts for students in our ICSD special programs. Contact Karen Johnson, karen.johnson@ironmail.org, if you are interested. Or you can pick up kits at the District Office, 2077 West Royal Hunte Drive, in the main office. If you have your own fabric and notions to use, just come by and pick up some instructions. Thank you to all you wonderful community members who have helped assemble quilts from these kits!

Volunteer with Camp Hobe

Happy New Year! I am the Executive Director of Camp Hobé, a Utah nonprofit serving kids with cancer (& similarly-treated disorders) and their families. We run camps every summer for Utah kids being treated for cancer (& similarly-treated disorders), and their siblings, and also offer free family outings throughout the year. Our organization utilizes more than 200 volunteers each year during the summer camp. We are currently recruiting volunteers for our summer camp sessions, including counselors and kitchen assistants. Volunteers are needed for the following sessions / dates.

  • Day Camp / Hobé Juniors: Thurs June 3 to Sat June 5, for campers aged 4 to 6 years. Day campers (4-5 year olds) do not stay overnight, while Hobé Juniors (6 year olds) have a 1-night overnight
  • Kids Week: Sun June 6 to Fri June 11, overnight resident camp for campers aged 7 to 11 years
  • Teen Week: Sun June 13 to Fri June 18, overnight resident camp for campers aged 12 to 19 years
  • Note for 2021: Depending on the current COVID-19 situation, all or part of the sessions may be conducted virtually. 

Volunteering for Camp Hobé is a great experience for anyone, but especially for school professionals such as teachers, assistants, administrators, or lunch workers. It’s a great opportunity to interact with kids outside of the classroom (plus 
you get to throw water balloons!). Our website has more about us, including our volunteer page, the online application, and job descriptions. Thank you so much for your help!
