Robin and Mani's All Buddy Camp


Buddy Camp is back for 2022 at Johnson Elementary School, June 21 - 24.  At All Buddy Camp, a "Big Buddy" is paired with a preschool aged student with special needs (Little Buddy) and works cooperatively with our professional program staff.  Buddies work one-on-one with each other for the entire week of All Buddy Camp.  The camp is a tribute to Robin and Mani Aldridge, who were committed to children with disabilities, art, and fun!
For more information about Robin and Mani's All Buddy Camp contact Sarah Blech at (434) 970-3264 or by emailing blechs@charlottesville.gov, or simply visit www.allbuddycamp.com
