The camp runs for two weeks starting the Monday after the August long weekend at the Northern Lights Lodge on Hanson Lake and groups attend for three-night sessions.

The local Bigs organization took nine individuals from Aug. 12 to 15.

The Bigs group thanked the Yorkton Lions Club for sponsoring two cabins and the Esterhazy Lions Club for sponsoring one cabin.

Comments from the campers included ‘best time of my life’, ‘so awesome to get to go fishing’, ‘I want to stay,’ ‘I would never of gotten to do this any other way’, and ‘I so appreciate it’.

This is a life changing opportunity thanks to the Lions who help make it possible especially Ken, Gord, Gary, Glenn and Doug our boat drivers and helpers.

Thanks to everyone for making a difference in so many peoples lives.
