THE STORY:

Hello friends and family, This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to be the Assistant Director of an incredible program, Camp Miracles! This program allows at-risk youth (ages 8-18years of age) from North Philadelphia, Northeast Philadelphia, as well as Radnor, PA to be mentored by high school and college students from across the United States and the world. Over the years, the friendships created between the mentees and the mentors has seized to amaze me. There has been numerous friendships built that have lasted years, and will last for a lifetime! The program participants works with their mentors in activities and lessons in character building, team building, and giving each camper the chance to have "the best week of camp ever!" Camp Miracles does environmental lessons, bonfires and s'mores, pool parties and allows the participants to have the well known camp experience. Over time, we have watched our campers grow to become mentors, attend college, attain employment, and emerge as leaders in their own communities. I was cut to the heart to see how much of an impact one week of camp can be for a child, and to see the joy and love that comes from this special experience. For many of the participants' families, it can be hard to sacrifice $25 to send their child to camp. I realized how easily it can be for me to spend $25 on food in a week, or in fees to go somewhere with friends. With this fundraiser, I hope to help give more kids the opportunity to partake in Camp Miracles, and to see more miracles be made! Thank you for your consideration to help me make this dream come true! If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact me, and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have to the best of my ability. Very Respectfully, Kaelyn L. Whetzel whetzekl@dukes.jmu.edu
