"Twenty five years ago, a young man with Cerebral
Palsy learned to walk after receiving help at the Bay Cliff Health Camp. Now,

Thirty-three-year-old Dan Pestka, along with the generous support of his father
and Oberstar Construction, sponsored a paved trail at the camp that leads down
to the Lake Superior shoreline. The trail has created a new lookout point to the
The total cost for the project is $145,000. The camp's director says if it
wasn't for people like the Pestka's, Bay Cliff wouldn't be able to provide so
much for the children.
Tim Bennett with Bay Cliff says, "This is the vision. The vision is helping kids
to live full lives and to do all the things other kids take for granted. How
about going to the beach for an afternoon to enjoy a nice warm day on the shore
of Lake Superior? That's a part of the vision where we're opening up those
opportunities to kids."
Dan Pestka and his father, Norman, cut the ribbon for the new trail and lookout
point at a dedication ceremony this weekend."
