If you love camp, you've heard the term "10 for 2". It means you live 10 months of the year to get to those 2 months of camp that are the best 2 months of the year. Well, 10 for 1 is a little different, but the love of camp is still at the root of it. A friend and supporter of Experience Camps, whose own children attend summer camp, thought that if the family of each of the 10 campers in her child's cabin donated $100, that cabin could send 1 child to Experience Camps! And so, the 10 for 1 campaign was born.
Camp families and friends, join together with your fellow camp people, start a "bunk" and let's make some magic for the kids of Experience Camps.
*Every $1000 raised sends one more child to Experience Camps!*
Experience Camps are free one-week camps for boys and girls who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. It's a place where kids can laugh, cry, play, create, remember the person who died, or forget the grief that weighs them down. It's a place where they can feel "normal", because everyone there has been through something similar and understands what it's like to lose someone important to them. It's a home away from home. And just about everyone will tell you..."It's the best week of the year".
