SIOUX CITY | Dr. Thomas Wente has a vested interest in Camp High Hopes.
"Having a son with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, I see the need for this exceptional organization and want to see it succeed," he said.
The camp recently announced Wente will serve as the nonprofit's volunteer medical director.
"It's so important to have specialized care available for the special campers that Camp High Hopes will be serving," Executive Director Ali Langseth said. "Some of our campers will require medication multiple times per day, and others may require assistance with specialized medical devices. I am so happy to have Dr. Wente's assistance in supporting the medical needs of the camp."
Camp High Hopes is an organization dedicated to providing year-round residential camping experiences for children and adults with disabilities. The campers participate in recreational, therapeutic and educational programs.
