Shannan Boyer's Fundraiser:

Every Child Should Experience A Week at Camp

Growing up in Iowa, the great outdoors were a part of my everyday life. Tent camping, boating, swimming in the creek, catching tadpoles - these were things we did everyday and we didn't think twice about it.

Through YMCA Camp Ernst, I have been able to give these same experiences to my children, Sean (12) and Brady (9).

Last year I decided that I wanted to try raise money to send a child from Covington to Camp Ernst for a week so that they too could have this experience. I put a call out to my friends, and wow. The response was amazing. Because of YOUR generosity we were able to send a 7th grade boy from Holmes Middle School to experience life at camp for the first time. We even raised a little extra and sent him a mid-week care package!

Camp has had quite an impact on my children, and I think it's important that every child have the opportunity to experience not only a place like Camp Ernst, but to have the chance to get out of the city and experience things like kayaking, lake swimming, creek walking, archery, horseback riding and so much more.

Once again I would like to ask for your help in sending a child from Holmes Middle School to Camp. I am hoping that you will help me raise $595, the amount needed to cover one week of camp this summer.

With your help we can give an amazing (life changing) camp experience (and tons of great memories) to a young girl or boy who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
