I was a lucky child. My parents could afford to send me to camp. Year after year after year. It was never a question of "if" but of "when." I didn't know, when I was a camper, which fellow campers were on scholarship to attend camp. Not only that, I didn't even know that a scholarship program existed. You see, during the miracle that is overnight camp, everyone has access to the same food, the same activities, the same friendships, the same forever memories.

I thought it would be helpful to include some quotes from a few scholarship recipients. $595 is the cost to send one child to camp for a week. Your donation, no matter how big or small, makes an impact:
Micaela: Camp is the highlight of summer break, and without your help, I wouldn't be able to experience it.
Nicholas: It is fun to try new stuff that we never get to experience.
Olivia: I would like to thank you for letting me be a part of camp. One of my favorite things to do there is EVERYTHING!!!
