If you’ve been to CCK, you’ve met Ollie. He has touched the lives of so many campers and has become a part of the CCK camp experience. He loves his job as the head Camp Dog. He specializes in making kids smile, swimming in the lake, and scoring bacon left overs. He loves everyone he meets....well except the pigs Marco and Polo. He’s an all around good boy who brings the CCK staff so much joy. Take a moment to wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! He’s celebrating the big 11 today! ... See MoreSee Less

The Stormi Murtie Service Above Self Award is given annually to a volunteer who gives greatly of themselves without fail. This award is given in honor of CCK’s first employee, Stormi Murtie, who helped create the sense of community at The Center for Courageous Kids and made helping others the strongest value of the Camp.

This year, the award went to MaKayla Williams. She worked tirelessly this summer volunteering over 400 hours in one of the hardest jobs on camp, housekeeping. We serve hundreds of children each summer which means hundreds of loads of laundry to be done, spills to be picked up, bathrooms to be cleaned, and beds to be made. Our housekeeping team works tirelessly to keep things beautiful on camp and this year they had a little extra help. As a young person, she truly exemplifies the spirit of CCK and the beauty of selfless giving.
