Eunice Kennedy Shriver started Camp Shriver in her yard at her Timberlawn property in 1962. Eunice and her brother, President John F. Kennedy, had a sister named Rosemary with an highbrow incapacity. Because of their stories with their sister, they made up our minds to carry an afternoon camp for children from Washington D.C. and Maryland who had highbrow disabilities. At Camp Shriver, campers had been offered to horseback driving, swimming, canoeing, and a lot more. For lots of campers, this used to be their first time experiencing those actions and finding out the abilities required to take part in them. Mary and her dual Ann carried out to be volunteer camp counselors on the camp via their parochial highschool and the 2 labored there for a couple of summers.
