Jewett. Button soon will be entering his sophomore year at Kane Area High School.

For 28 years, Camp JJ has provided a fun summer experience for Kane area children with “special needs.”
Camp JJ for the past four years has been located at the Highlander Christian Camp complex in Wetmore Township. Camp JJ this month offered two three-day sessions. The camp ended Saturday.
The first three-day session last week served 25 children. The second three-day session served 22 children.
Jeanette Smith of Mt. Jewett has been the camp director for the past eight years. She previously served as the “camp cook” for 11 years.
