RAA is gearing up for Camp kidsmART 2003 (July 7-August 7). Registration will start the beginning of May. We anticipate registration to fill quickly, as space is limited. Last year the program accommodated 150 campers, ages 6-14, 25 local youth as teen assistants and 25 staff members. We are currently seeking additional space in order to accommodate the tremendous demand. RAA is particularly pleased to be able to offer meaningful job opportunities to our local teens.

Check out the image accompanying the column this week. It is a photograph by RAA photographer Roger Carreau entitled "Hope Flag." The work of RAA photographers will be on display, in May and June, in "Through the Lens: A Member Exhibition." Right now, "Destinations" runs through April 27. See you soon, at the Fort.
