Dear Supporters, Thank you so much for your dedication to scholarships, allowing children who might not dream as big, to attend camp.  Right  See more

THE STORY:

Give. And do so much more.

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. We’re committed to strengthening community and believe that lasting change comes when we all work together to invest in our children. We count on the generosity of people like you to help give kids this life-changing experience. Your gift will have a meaningful, enduring impact- lifelong friendships, new skills and new self-confidence learned at Camp Nissokone.

"I had originally decided to go to camp because I wanted to ride horses every day for two weeks straight. What ended up being the real camp story was something I never expected and has totally changed me for life. I can't even express using words how I felt about myself before Nisso. It was not. good. I have a pretty good memory, so there are many things in my life that I feel I'll remember forever. One thing I know I'll never EVER forget is the parking lot for the bus. I was scared senseless because I was convinced that the only friends I was going to make were the horses. Then I got on the bus and this girl who looked so much cooler than me wanted to sit with me on the ride to camp. Then after spending 3 hours with me she still wanted to be bunk mates. I still remember not knowing how to react to that. That stupid sign on the front of the bus said "FUN BOUND". It should have said "YOUR LIFE IS GOING TO CHANGE FOREVER TODAY. BE PREPARED." Thanks, Piper. Not to get all sentimental on y'all, but I always thought you should know how important that was for me. I'm seriously tearing up right now. That place was nothing short of magic. Amusingly enough, I have all the free access to horses that I want now, and all I want is Nisso. You’re never be the same again, whether you realize it right away or later on."

Give. And do so much more.

I met Steve a few times through my brother and he was a real charismatic guy who knew how to have fun. From everything that I was told about him, I know he will be sorely missed by his friends and at the camp so this is a real fitting gesture to him guys :) 1 year ago
