Thank you so much for the ho…
Thank you so much for the honor your donation!

Your contribution will allow a child with a serious medical condition to focus on their condition of “being a kid” for an entire week -an opportunity that many will never have and that many former campers never have again. I feel strongly that these children deserve this chance to forget about their pain. Many of them know each other from the pediatric hospital wards (where some spend most of their lives) and frequent visits to regional specialist’s offices, and believe me, they talk about camp. Thanks to your support, a child who is probably packing and unpacking right now with their fingers crossed will experience the magic of camp this summer.

When our camper arrives, they will find their name drawn in LARGE, bubbly sidewalk chalk letters outside their cabin as well as a donated toy (such as a transformer)on their bunk which will be neatly made with a hand-sewn quilt. Their counselors will already know all about them, and as soon as their medications are checked in at the patch(where we ‘patch’ kids up),their dreams will begin to come true.

The beautiful and specially designed swimming pool was built by Sea World and boasts a large tile mosaic of Shamu. The gym was built by the Orlando magic with a regulation size basketball court complete with a half court Magic insignia. It is as spacious as it is beautiful and provides a once in a lifetime experience for any child who has ever dreamed of being a professional athlete. The theatre, perhaps the main attraction, was built by Disney’s Universal Studios and includes dressing rooms that are fully stocked with costumes and props. In case it hadn’t settled in, DREAMS COME TRUE AT CAMP!

I cannot express the depth of my appreciation for your support. Please know that your contribution will help to create smiles and memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much for letting the light of your love and compassion shine into the lives of these young heroes who spend every day face to face with the prospect of death and torment of intolerable pain. While childhood disease is horrifying, it has the miraculous quality of bringing out the best in those like you who DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. You deserve special recognition for choosing to give such an incredible gift!!

Your kindness and generosity are deeply appreciated and will never, ever, ever be forgotten. On behalf of our camper, thanks for coming to the rescue!!
