BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater Cincinnati
My camp story started the summer of 2003. I was a nine-year-old eager to go away from home for the first time. Right after my mom dropped me off at camp I knew I'd like this place! When the end of the week came I begged my parents to leave me there and let me stay another week, and that, my friends, is where my love started. This will be my 11th summer attending YMCA Camp Ernst and my 4th summer on staff. I have worked in kitchens, cleaned bathrooms, built benches, lifeguarded, sent kids off zip lines, riden on the back of banana boats, and most importantly helped kids unplug from this crazy world and recognize their own potential. If it were not for camp I don't know where I'd be today. It has led me in the best direction I could have possibly gone. Now, will you help me give that same life-changing experience to other kids? My goal is to raise enough money for one child to get a free week at camp this summer. Any contribution, big or small, will help make this child's future a little bit brighter. Thank you all for the help!
