You can register to join the Angels Unaware team at www.aidswalkcolorado.org. Make sure you designate Angels Unaware as your team! "We have not yet defeated AIDS, but together we can make a difference."
September 9-11 (note the change; this is NOT Labor Day weekend): 17th Annual Camp Ray-Ray Rocketing Forward into New Frontiers!: "My favorite part of Camp Ray-Ray is knowing there are people out there like you, that you can be yourself and not worry about things. Like a Great Big Family." This is the 17th Annual free family camp, celebrating the goal of rocketing forward into new frontiers! Up to 20 families and over 30 volunteers will gather to celebrate life and join to provide encouragement and support to children living with HIV/AIDS. A few things are different this year. First, we are moving to a NEW location to the YMCA's Snow Mountain Ranch near Grandby, CO. Second, the date has changed to the weekend AFTER Labor Day. It was the best weekend we could get at the new facility. At the YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch, we will have a cargo load of free activities, including roller skating, swimming (indoor pool), multiple on-site hiking trails, and miniature golf, just to name a few. Plus, there is horseback riding on-site, a challenge course, and a zip-line that we are trying to work into the budget or may be available for a fee. We also have reservations at a brand new lodge with many fine amenities. Please join us as we bid a fond farewell to our first home and joyfully begin to make Snow Mountain Ranch our new home. Remember to turn in your application by the deadline of June 1st, 2011! A $25 deposit is required with registration (all families this year - all deposits will be returned upon arrival at Camp Ray-Ray).
December 11th, 2:00-4:00 PM: Holiday Party with Family/Volunteer Gift Exchange: Enjoy food, games, swimming, and fellowship at Angels Unaware's annual holiday party. Re-connecting with family and friends (volunteers) during the holiday is a great way to celebrate and acknowledge the support and kindness shown through AU and Camp Ray-Ray. AU will bring food and beverages for the party. Bring a family gift to participate in the family gift exchange! This year, the family gift should be a re-gift or a homemade gift. (Please do not go out and purchase a gift; $10 in value limit.) We will meet at the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center (4005 Kipling Street, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033). RSVP by phone or email is required by December 3, including how many adults and children under 12 will attend and how many are swimming. Volunteers are encouraged to attend, but please RSVP! ~Kids can swim in the leisure pool, which includes a 120 foot water slide, a frog slide for the little ones, fountains, tumble buckets, and the lazy river. Kids under 5 who swim must be accompanied by an adult and children under 8 must be supervised by an adult. ~
