Camp Pride Information
The Shooting Stars Self-Advocates are the voice of The Arc. The advocates learn about local, state, and national policies, the importance of voting and how to advocate for themselves in the community.
Our advocates are a huge volunteer base for The Arc, supporting different activities and events throughout the year. They also host community events for families and are the reason The Arc’s Lights shine.
They meet monthly for potlucks and open forum meetings.
