Sponsor a Child
The vast majority of the youth we serve come from families who live below the federal poverty level. Their households are often so focused on meeting basic needs that finding funds for recreational activities is simply out of the question. Your sponsorship helps change that, giving children in need a camp experience that enriches their lives for years to come. Gifts at any level are welcome and greatly appreciated
