2019 will be my fourth time running Reach the Beach for Calumet and I couldn’t be more excited!
Camp Calumet is such an important place to me. Camp gives kids a place to be themselves. Every summer as a camper and then as I counselor I got to hike mountains, sail and make the best friends in the world.
During my time as a counselor I also got to be a counselor at Worcester Urban Day Camp, and I've been going back every summer for a day or two since then. These kids love the simplest things; a game of four square, a piggy back ride or scream singing their favorite songs.
Now as a member of the Board of Directors I get to see first hand the impact that Camp can have in a whole new way. Calumet is such a special place and I want to make sure any kid who wants to go there has the opportunity to do so.
I'm running so that other kids get the chance to have the same experiences at Camp. The money we raise will help offset the cost of camp for kids who may not be able to afford it. I hope you can help me reach my goal - any amount helps!
In 2018 Calumet provided campership awards in the amount of $110 to EVERY SINGLE camper, and additional support for those kids who needed special help covering the fees. This Reach the Beach fundraiser allows Calumet’s fee to be as low as possible thereby keeping in within reach for every family. Any amount you can give truly makes a huge difference. Thanks so much for your support!
