I had the amazing experience of working at Kateri Day Camp for 6 years, from 2007 until 2012. It was always beautiful to see the children's faces light up when they participated in an activity that they have never done before, seen an new animal for the first time, or learned how to swim! However, by far the most rewarding experience working at camp was to see the kids come back each year. The majority of the children who attended Kateri Day Camp were there on "camperships," where money was raised to provide this financial aid--- like in fundraisers, such as this one!
I am currently working at Collier Youth Services again, but this time in a different capacity-- as a school social worker. While working last summer, I was excited to be given the opportunity to witness Kateri Day Camp in action again!
Please consider donating to this great program! Even if it's just a few dollars, it will undoubtedly help! Thank you!
You can make a difference in a local child's life this summer! Kateri Day Camp provides a safe haven for children and their families through meals, roundtrip transportation, daily swimming lessons, a unique literacy program, special day trips, and outdoor recreation--all of which help to build confidence, form positive relationships, and make lasting memories.
Our campers come from 25 Monmouth County towns and are all from families that live below the poverty level.
As one grandmother states, "Kateri Day Camp shows my grandbabies a world that is not what they see out their window. It shows them goodness and kindness and fun."
Make a donation today and send a kid to camp...it can change a future!
