3rd Annual “NW Iowa Playmakers Camp” Saturday In Orange City

MOC Floyd Valley is hosting a Playmakers Camp in Orange City Saturday morning from 10:00-12:45 at the Juffer Fieldhouse (on the campus of Northwestern College).

The camp is specifically designed for students and adults with disabilities from various communities in Northwest Iowa. Participants will enjoy a morning of learning skills, drills, and competing in different games with one another. After enjoying games and competition in the morning, we will enjoy lunch together, along with a tasty treat from Iowa State Bank (ice cream truck) as well. The atmosphere will be like that of a “Special Olympics” event.

The camp has been organized by MOC-Floyd Valley – in coordination with the leadership of the Playmakers organization.

The Playmakers: Inclusive Sports, Character, Relationships

Members of the MOC-FV Football team, along with players and coaches from several other area high schools, are helping provide volunteers for the day along with several members from our communities. There are currently 60+ participants registered for the event along with an additional 30+ volunteers. Participants are coming from as far as 60 miles away to enjoy a morning of fun and each participant will be paired up with a peer mentor that will join them for the activities of the morning.

According to MOC Floyd Valley Head Football Coach Greg Hegstad, our hope is to have a great morning promoting fun, inclusivity, character, relationships, and community.

The camp is free to all participants in thanks to the generosity of Orange City Area Health System, Sioux Center Health, Hydraulic Solutions, LLC (Sheldon), Baker Financial Services (Orange City), Iowa State Bank, Northwestern Bank, Premier Communications, and American State Bank.
