Norton was a loving English Sheepdog that had
diabetes. He visited ADA Camp Carefree every year, as our Camp Mascot. When
he passed away, his owner wanted to remember him in a special way. Thus,
the Norton Award was “born”!

Every year, we present the Norton Award for
Resourcefulness to the camper who shows the most initiative/creativity in
raising money towards his/her camp fee. The camper’s name is added to a
special plaque that is displayed at camp.
Below are the essays from past Norton Award Winners.
