HELP SEND KIDS TO CAMP!
Camp Jewell YMCA 2017 Annual Campaign
|We as a camp community, have the overwhelming privilege of sharing the experiences of camp, with hundreds of kids who could not be here without the life changing support of our financial aid program, otherwise known as our Annual Campaign.|
To a child, summer camp is a dynamic, life-changing experience. It’s more than fun; it’s an opportunity during a time in childhood when positive role models and new adventures can solidify a young person’s future success in life. There continues to be a need to share these experiences, and as camp approaches, we are compelled to ask you to consider an additional gift at this time.
Every week we hear of families with unforeseen medical bills, sudden unemployment, oversees military deployment and other family trauma. All of these challenges impact their lives. The relief these families feel knowing their children will be away from these challenges, is why we do what we do and know the difference it has made in their lives.
Our campers are asked each summer, “What does Camp Jewell mean to you?” Here’s what they have to say:
Camp provides that extra boost of excitement, fun, and acceptance that can re-focus children and help them capture a new perspective and positive approach to life.
Please consider helping to bring more kids to camp, with your gift of $10, $20, $50, $100 or more, together we will make a difference in a child’s life this summer.
