Those who attend Camp Care were exhausted on Thursday morning.
The campers had spent the prior day at Six Flags amusement park and the flurry of activity proved to be tiring.
After a three week run, the 2017 camp wrapped up on Friday. The camp, which serves those ages 6-20 who have physical, emotional, and developmental difficulties, was held at the Rising Sun Community Center. The facility hosted children and youths from throughout Cecil County. More than half of the 57 campers this year have autism. Some have down's syndrome.

The Rising Sun Library recently hosted a program chronicling the history of the Plumpton Park Zoo.
"What I hope these kids learn is to conserve these animals and live our lives a little differently to keep animals from disappearing. I don't want the kids to take the natural world for granted. I want them to realize it is important, it is vibrant, and it's apart of us and we are apart of it. The twin pillars of zoos these days are and should be conservation and education," said Crystal Hudson, Plumpton Park Zoo's education specialist.
