Spring Break – all fun and games

Posted: March 27, 2012 in Activities, Spring Break

Spring Break: a time for sun and fun and total relaxation away from schoolwork, right?  Here’s how one of our Welding Engineering majors spent his.

Report and photos from Jake, 2nd-year OSU Welding Engineering Major:

OSU Buck-I-Serv group a Camp Baker

Over the Spring break I went with a group of OSU students on a Buck-I-Serv trip to Richmond, Virginia.
For 7 days we volunteered and lived at Camp Baker, aiding individuals with intellectual disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Asperger syndrome, Down syndrome, and a variety of other disorders. The camp supervisors, caretakers, and the camp nurse taught us a lot about the disorders of the campers with whom we did crafts and physical activities.

From the Buck-I-Serv website: Buck-I-Serv is The Ohio State University’s alternative break program that sends students across the country over winter, spring and summer break to volunteer on a variety of social issues. All trips are substance free and offer students the chance to not only learn about the social issues their trip is addressing, but immerse themselves in a first hand experience to better their understanding of the issue at large.
