Camp Attaway has Found a Leader

Sue Ann Shafley

Sue Ann Shafley

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Sue Ann Shafley (sshafley@campattaway.org) as Camp Attaway’s first Executive Director. With a background in non-profit management, special education, law and commercial real estate, Ms. Shafley is exceptionally well-suited to lead Camp Attaway in Camp Attaway’s development. Ms. Shafley, a Howard County resident, recognizes the need for Camp Attaway’s resources to be more available to more children and their families as well as to the professional community. She will focus her efforts on expanding programming and procuring a permanent site for the Camp.

Thanks to Howard County Department of Recreation & Parks

After 18 years of collaboration, Camp Attaway’s formal partnership with Howard County Recreation & Parks, has come to an end. This partnership enabled Camp Attaway to hold camp sessions in schools throughout the county, and gave our program key administrative support. We are grateful for the partnership, and we will continue to provide a valuable therapeutic recreational service that children with special needs may access in our county.

A Home Has Been Found!

We are in the throes of Winter and Camp Attaway has found a site to hold our 2014 camp session. Arrangements are being finalized to hold Camp Attaway at the Phillips School which is located in Laurel, Maryland.
