BENEFITING: RAMAPO FOR CHILDREN INC
All children dream of success. Your support helps them align their behaviors with their aspirations.
“I’ve learned so much about these kids, they’ve surprised me everyday. These kids are truly nothing short of amazing and I am honored to have been able to help them. Looking at their goal sheets and the leaps and bounds in their improvements was a great feeling and it was strange to think I’d only known them for a few short weeks. I’m going to miss them. They have made a difference in my life and the way I live it.” - Michael, Ramapo Counselor
Ramapo is built around the simple belief that all people want the same things: to learn, to feel valued, and to experience success. Each summer Camp Ramapo instills confidence and self-esteem in over 550 children with challenges, enabling them to develop friendships, try new things, and to thrive. You’ve seen and experienced that. You’ve also seen how being a counselor has impacted your life, instilling you with a new-found confidence and skills that you will carry with you.
Providing scholarships to our most financially deserving campers is at the core of our mission. You may not have known that each year over 55% of our campers attend Ramapo on scholarships. The support of our friends and Ramapo community enables us to provide over 250 children each year with a meaningful summer camp experience that they otherwise would not have, giving them an amazing opportunity where they not only have fun, but learn the tangible skills necessary for success at home, in school, and in life.
As our Ramapo Counselor Class of 2015, we invite you to join with us and once again make a difference for a camper in need. Your challenge is to raise $1,500 to provide a Ramapo scholarship for a needy camper in the coming year. With your help, we can achieve success.
