Send A Kid 2 Camp Please!

There was a time in our lives where playing outdoors in the summer was something that we took for granted. We didn’t spend our hours inside, grown up before our time, caring for our siblings or our parents. We didn’t worry about gun violence, gangs, drugs, abductions on our sidewalks. We didn’t have to be the man or woman of the house when our parent went to fight for our country. Childhood was sacred and the bumps and bruises that we got came from riding our bikes, jumping from swings or playing games with our friends. Today, our children must be taught, far too young, that the dangers of the world are real. It is for this reason that Send Kids to Camp was founded.

Send Kids to Camp aims to raise enough money to give hundreds of children the chance to escape these surroundings. Hundreds of children from our community will attend Camp Farnam in Durham, Connecticut for one week. More children burdened by sickness or disability will be able to spend their week at Camp Rising Sun in Colebrook, Connecticut. At these magical places they will play, swim, make arts and crafts, fish and breathe fresh air. In addition to inner city children, Send Kids to Camp has expanded our initiative this year and will also work to send over 100 Children of Connecticut Veterans to camp. Military children face a special set of challenges and this initiative is our way of helping them to have fun while also saying thank you to their parents for their brave service to our country. We have amazing partners that will ensure these children have a once in a lifetime experience It is an incredibly rewarding and humbling experience for all of us who are involved. We would like for you to feel that joy too. We need your help. Please consider donating $150 - the amount it costs to send one child to camp for a week...or at any level. The kids appreciate any help you can offer.
