Students Dance to Earn Service Hours

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 2.04.04 PMIHA girls are no strangers to service, but what many people do not realize is that they have fun doing it.

Volunteers danced the night away with special needs children and adults at Camp Acorn on October 2nd.  As part of a service opportunity from C.A.R.E., IHA’s service club, students were able to spend three hours serving and dancing in Allendale.

At the beginning of the night, each girl was paired up with a camper.  The campers loved having the girls’ attention.  Aside from dancing, the girls served the campers chips and drinks.

Music during the dance was provided by DJ Randi Rae.

Many girls from IHA attended, as Camp Acorn is one of the more popular volunteer opportunities.  The girls form bonds with the campers, who are excited to see them at the camp each week and at the monthly dances.

“Although my IHA sisters constantly inspire and impress me, they really show their selflessness and compassion at Camp Acorn,” Shannon Gleba ’17 explains.  “All of the girls are willing to step out of their comfort zones and make the dances fun and exciting for all of the campers!  I cannot wait until the dance in November to see all of the campers have a great time dancing next to my awesome classmates!”
