As I get ready for my fourth Reach the Beach with Calumet (!), I can't help but consider all of the reasons I participate in this fundraiser. I spent 12 summers at Calumet and every one of them helped shape who I have become. From making and strengthening wonderful friendships to learning to love hiking to learning silly camp songs that I still sing with my students, my experiences at Calumet still affect my daily life in the best of ways.
As an elementary school teacher, I understand how important it is for kids to have the chance to play, meet new friends, and have new experiences in a welcoming and positive environment. Camp was one of these places for me and I'm so excited to help provide camperships for kids who otherwise may not be able to go to camp and to keep the cost low for everyone else.
Thank you for considering a donation--every little bit makes a big difference to someone!
**This site requires a processing fee on top of your donation. It is less expensive for you to make a donation directly through the Calumet web page (www.calumet.org) by clicking on "Giving"-->"Make a Gift" then scrolling down to the Reach the Beach section and mentioning my name. Even less expensive is writing a check and mailing it to the address below. In the notes section, write "RTB-Cate Lacroix."
