Martinsville, Indiana’s Camp Riley has a very special appreciation for the Indiana Epsilon Sigma Alpha chapter. Camp Riley is a summer camp that offers outdoor opportunities to children and teens with physical disabilities. For the third year in a row, the Indiana chapter has sponsored Camp Riley campers to have the opportunity of the lifetime by traveling to Denver to become certified scuba divers. ESA member and past Indiana ESA President, Deena Personett, said in an interview with the Riley Children’s Foundation, “This opportunity would be an amazing accomplishment for anyone. However, when you see young people who have challenges with normal daily tasks due to their physical limitations accomplish this milestone it is nothing short of inspiring.”
