Do you know her?

"Before my brain became a tangled web of amyloid plaques, I could read for hours. Before my words became merely an alphabet of ashes, I loved conversations with my friends and family.

Summer at CMA

The temperature is rising and vacations have commenced, which signals that summer is in full swing. That leads some to believe that school is out and Camden Military Academy (CMA) is closed. Nothing could be further from the truth. CMA offers both summer school and summer camp each year to enhance academics and cultivate the leaders of tomorrow.
