THE STORY:

City kids in the Great Outdoors! Running, Jumping, Laughing, Playing, Singing, Swimming, Boating, Fishing, and Archery, Arts& Crafts, Nature Hikes, Mountain Biking, Campfires and a whole lot more!

In the summer of 2000, Camp DayDreams was hatched.  For 13 years now, inner-city kids have had a chance to experience the joy of overnight summer camp because of folks like you.

I am going to run 26.2 miles on September 23, 2012 at the Rochester Marathon to send inner-city kids to SUMMER CAMP at Camp DayDreams! Show them some LOVE!  

Join me in making a donation to the Children of Camp DayDreams!  Thank you so much!

The Camp DayDreams Story  

Camp DayDreams (CDD) was started with an observation and an idea.  The observation: overnight summer camp is a powerful positive growth experience for youth.  The idea: if we could get kids who could never afford it to summer camp; it would be an even more powerful experience for them.  The overwhelming result from 13 years of our experience has confirmed our idea.    

Camp DayDreams was established as a not-for-profit 501c3 in 2000. Starting in August of 2000, we offered a week-long overnight summer camp of learning, growing and playing to Rochester’s urban youth ages 8 to 17 who would otherwise never have the opportunity to attend overnight summer camp.  We have spent 13 years creating, molding and cultivating a unique youth development program.  

Our purpose is to enrich the lives and increase the potential of Rochester’s urban youth, those most at risk to the call of the street and the stresses of urban poverty.  Early on, we recognized that year-round contact with our participants provided additional opportunities to present life lesson learning.  Year round contact also improved our connection to the campers and their families, thus enabling us to have a greater impact on the youth.   

Over the years we have expanded our program to incorporate monthly interactions throughout the year with the campers and their families, in addition to our residential summer camping week. These activities have evolved CDD into a year round program.  Our core philosophy of instilling life lessons and interpersonal skills through an organized overnight summer camp then reinforcing those skills and lessons through regular interactions has been shown to be very effective.   

More than 1200 participants over the last 13 years have experienced the Camp DayDreams magic. Many of them have benefited from the program for multiple years. Dozens of them have advanced to participation in the leadership development phase of our program (LIT program for ages 14 &15) and then went on to become junior counselors (age 16 & 17) and are now adult volunteers at Camp DayDreams.
