BENEFITING: MOUNTAIN PARK ENVIRONMENTAL ASSOCIATION
ORGANIZER: MOUNTAIN PARK ENVIRONMENTAL ASSOCIATION
Attending Camp Fox Fire at the YMCA in LaPorte, IN is one of the most memorable things from my childhood. I was transported to a city park each day and spent my summers hiking, canoeing, playing games, doing arts and crafts, and hanging out with my friends. I was fortunate that my parents were able to provide that opportunity for me, but many families are not able to spend the money for their children to attend summer camp. Please donate to MPEC's scholarship fund and give a child in Pueblo the opportunity to come to Pueblo Mountain Park each day to experience the wonders of nature.

Mountain Park Environmental Center's mission is to serve our community and we are committed to connecting people to nature. As such, we believe that money should never be a reason for a child not to attend summer camp. Our summer camps are offered to students entering grades K-9 and offer a variety of age-appropriate activities including music, games and nature exploration for our younger kids, and teaching backpacking and nature survival skills to the older kids. Our camps range in price from $150 - $400. In 2015, we gave $8185 for partial or full scholarships to 45 campers. Please give to our scholarship program and help us keep our promise that no child will ever be turned away due to financial constraints.
