“This experience isn’t just something to share with others. This is a huge impact to his self-esteem and dreams. Now, in his future, he hopes to share the love which he experienced at camp with people in need.”
A grateful mother recently shared these words in appreciation of the experience her son had at summer camp. As she shared, camp can be such a crucial opportunity to support children to build bright futures and help them grow into healthy, whole adults.
Family camp is one opportunity for an entire family to experience how life-changing camp can be! In this issue of Gratitude, you’ll read about the difference that a week at camp made for Janet’s family. For the energetic family of eight, camp gave them invaluable time together—time that would be impossible during the normal pressures of the year.
With your help, hundreds of children and families will be able to attend camp this summer. I hope you recognize the great impact your gift has, not just in providing unforgettable summer memories, but also in empowering and encouraging kids and adults alike to be all that they can be. With your support, cycles of poverty in our neighbourhood can be broken as we continue to nourish bright futures.
