For the last 2 summers, I have spent a week each summer at Experience Camps: a free one-week sleepaway camp for kids who have lost a parent or sibling. To say these weeks have been the most rewarding weeks of the year would be an understatement. One of the many things that makes Experience Camps unique is that its completely *free* for campers to attend and $1,000 covers one camper's tuition. Today, on giving Tuesday please consider donating and making the dream of camp come alive for some of the kids who need it most.
More about Experience Camps:
This past summer marked our 10th year of Experience Camps. In 2009, we held our first program with 27 boys at Camp Manitou and we've been off and running ever since. Next summer, we will have over 700 campers at 5 locations around the country. It is through the people who believe in us that we've been able to grow as fast as we have, and yet there's so much more to do.
Our volunteers, campers, families, partners, influencers, and supporters are the loudly ticking heart of this organization. Please join us in sharing the message, sharing your own story, and filling the fuel tank of this engine so we can keep reaching the kids who need us.
