We help send underprivileged, special needs and at-risk kids to summer camp. Our mission is to provide self-esteem and skill-building programming for our kids as they explore and enjoy the outdoors.
Have you ever seen the smile on a kid's face after he's jumped into a lake for the very first time? It's amazing. Something that child will never forget. Our kids will experience all new things that they would otherwise not get to do. Most of our kids lived in underprivileged neighborhoods and have never been outside of their city. Just driving 4 hours to Northern Michigan is a big deal. Not to mention the great fun they have once they get to camp! Help us give kids in need an opportunity they will cherish and remember forever.
We need your help. We're going to provide incredible opportunities for underprivileged and developmentally challenged kids to grow, learn and prepare to take on life's challenges.
It costs $250 to send an at-risk kid to camp. Our goal is to get TWO whole cabins of kids to camp this summer which means we need to raise $5000.
Here’s what you can do. Click the orange Donate button on this page and make a donation.
After you make a donation please click the Join the Team button on this page. You'll be prompted to set up your own account and, within seconds, you'll have your own personal fundraising page that you can send to your family and friends and ask them to donate too. Just click the Share button after you create your page and it'll all make sense. You can write your own personal message or use the one already written for you.
Imagine the impact we can have if everyone donates and then gets 10 of their friends to donate too. That’s the goal.
