TAMA – Iowa Valley Continuing Education is continuing its goals to reach out to local communities and provide what they need and want most. On Thursday, July 12, IVCE offered the first Otter Creek Kids Camp in Toledo. The one-day camp was a huge success, with 45 children participating.

All instructors, food, and facilities for the camp were donated. “We would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped out with this day. The committee did an amazing job of organizing the camp,” says IVCE Coordinator Sandy Supianoski. “Everyone involved went above and beyond to make this a fun and memorable experience for the kids.”
Volunteer instructors included Emily Klein, Mike and Aaron Haughey, Jan and Dick Dehrkoop, Cheryl Bruene, Jenny Hulme, Teresa Klostermann, Danielle Kness, Logan Roberts and Jon Nunez.
Sponsors for the camp were Iowa Valley Continuing Education, South Tama Community School District, Iowa State Extension, and Tama County Conservation.
