Originally, Camp Jigsawâ€™s schedule called for campers to visit the Mississippi Horse Park Monday afternoon, but rain prevented it.
Sandy Devlin, founder of Camp Jigsaw and professor of curriculum, instruction and special education at Mississippi State University, said the visit to the horse park had to be postponed to Thursday as a result, and it was a disappointment for campers and counselors alike. But the change of schedule served a valuable purpose: Camp Jigsaw is for youths with autism, and she said many of them have a preference for precise schedules that sometimes needs to be challenged.
