Camp Copeneconic Names Special Building for Two Area Kids – The Good News [VIDEO]
"If this story teaches us one thing, it teaches of that time is precious."
Christie Siegel lost her two children, Jordan and Ashley, in a car accident back in 2012. The kids, ages 14 and 12 at the time of their death, loved Camp Copeneconic in Fenton, and now, there's a brand-new building named in their honor.
The camp needed a storage center, so the Jordan & Ashley Adventure Center was built with the help of the national YMCA and the YMCA of the Greater Flint Foundation. It will house bikes and ski equipment.
"They've inspired many of us who work here, many of the campers here with their love of adventure," executive camp director John Carlson told ABC12 News.
In addition, Christie also holds fundraisers throughout the area so that more kids can go to camp.
Our son absolutely LOVES this place, and I'm so glad that another mother can find some peace in knowing that her kids will always live on there.
