Camp Sundown creates fun for kids at night
CLAVERACK -- Some very special “campers” learned how to ride horses at night thanks to the the stars and moonlight.
The kids are from Camp Sundown and all of the kids can’t be exposed to sunlight because they have XP. Xeroderma pigmentosa (XP) is a very rare, heritable disorder whose distinguishing feature is an increased sensitivity to ultraviolet (UV) light. The appearance of the first symptoms of XP is typically between 1 and 2 years of age.
Some 20 kids and their families are participating in an evening at the LinKenTim Farm. They’re swimming in the pond and riding horses for the first time. LinKenTim Farm specialize in therapeutic horse back riding.
