One of the highlights of the summer was seeing success with one of our new partnerships with the City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department. Twice a week, BlazeSports would join Camp Joyful Soles to provide two hours of physical activity for the campers.  Joyful Soles is a summer camp for high functioning children with mild cognitive disabilities, ages 13-21 years old. Each camper had the opportunity to learn a variety of sports including boccia, basketball, soccer, baseball, sit volleyball and other group games, along with yoga.
