Summer Camp for Special Needs

Summer Camp for Special Needs

Looking for a place for your child or loved one to attend a fun summer  camp? Camp Barnabas is the perfect camp for special needs! With three  locations in Missouri, Camp Barnabas looks to change perspectives and  redefine disabilities. Each week is a different camp “theme”. Every week  teams at Camp Barnabas cater their activities to specific age groups  and disabilities so that every camper can participate, have a great  time, and not feel excluded.

Have a camper with strict medical needs? No worries! Camp Barnabas is  equipped with a full medical facility including nurses and doctors that  will be able to accommodate any medical needs your camper may require.

Worried about paying for camp? Upon request, there are camp scholarships  available to help your camper make their way to camp. Do you have a  camper that you feel would be more comfortable with their sibling with  them? It’s possible! For your camper and their sibling to join us at  camp, the total will be the same for both campers. Again, if you feel as  if this might be an issue, we offer scholarships upon request. Once you  are ready to begin your payment, you can do so through your camper’s  account, go to the financial section and click the “make a payment”  button. Once here, you will be able to put in your billing information.

So what will your camper be getting themselves into while at camp? Each  day they start out by waking up at 7:30 and eating breakfast followed by  camp songs, cabin Devotionals, and cabin clean up. Then the day has  officially begun continuing with cabin activities, activities outside  their cabins, lunch, dinner, and wrapping up each night with a party and  lights out by 10:30pm.

 You do not want to miss out on your camper’s wonderful adventures here  at Camp Barnabas! For more specific information about getting signed up  with Waldo Photos, scroll on over to the Waldo Photo tab at the top of  the page. Here you will find information from starting out new to this  opportunity all the way through payments, privacy policy, and finally,  getting to see the photos that Waldo Photo snaps of your camper having a  blast at Camp Barnabas!

Here at Camp Barnabas, we promise to give your camper the best  experience they could ever want! In order to do this, location should be  the least of your worries. Camp Barnabas has three locations in Purdy,  Shell Knob, and Springfield, Missouri. We hope to see you next summer  for a week of fun adventures full of new friends, smiles, and laughter!… Read More

Dating in the Digital Age

Dating in the Digital Age

If you are single, you may feel like you are the only lonely person left, especially if all your friends have paired off. However, that’s not true. Actually, most young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 are single. So, if all you are seeing around you are couples, then it’s time to look elsewhere.

There are plenty of ways to find a new partner. Some of the most popular and successful ways to meet someone new are being introduced by friends, meeting at bars or clubs, finding someone at school or work, and of course online dating. Thanks to the help of technology, dating has never been easier. The stigma behind online dating has also disappeared. In fact, approximately 40 percent of Americans are using online dating. Online dating is an easy way for singles to start meeting new people. There are many different apps and websites that allow you to reach singles near you. All you have to do is click on the website, fill out a profile, add some pictures, and start finding new people to talk to.

You may wonder how to get started with online dating. The first thing to do is to choose a platform. There are many different sites and apps to choose from. Some sites, like Match.com cater to an older crowd, while sites like Tinder tend to attract more young adults. Take a little while to look around at different sites and find one that has not only like-minded individuals, but also a variety of people. If you are religious and only looking for like-minded people, you may want to save time and just use a site for your religion. Also, think about how much time you want to invest in your search. Phone apps, like Tinder, require little time or effort setting up a profile and finding matches. Meanwhile, websites, like OkCupid give you more opportunity to get into depth about yourself and what you are looking for, possibly saving time in the long run.

Once you have found your online dating platform, it is time to set up a profile. You should always include at least a few photos. Choose recent photos that show you the way you currently look. Avoid photos that feature members of the sex that you are trying to attract, even if they are your brother or sister. Photos with animals or where you are smiling and doing something you enjoy are usually good bets. Your main profile pic should be of you alone. Include key information in your profile and avoid the use of too much filler. To see if others you know are using a Tinder profile and shouldn’t be, click here.

Once your profile is set up, it is time to meet some new people. Send nice, thoughtful messages that show that you took some time reading the person’s profile. Messaging multiple people will yield better results. Don’t give up if you don’t get responses right away; real connections take … Read More
