As we look forward to our 92nd season, we hope to make camp a possibility for at least 489 campers who, without the generosity of others, would not be able to afford this life-changing experience. At Sloane, we beleive that camp is not a luxury, instead it provides children with opportunities for immense growth.
For a child who has never been away from home, camp is not a luxury. Camp is an introduction to independence.
For a child who has never been anywhere dark enough to see the stars, camp is not a luxury. Camp offers an appreciation of nature.
For a child who has never performed on a stage or shot a bow and arrow, camp is not a luxury. Camp showcases interests that bring lifelong enjoyment.
For a child whose friends all live nearby, camp is not a luxury. Camp is an opportunity to have friends who are different.
For a child who does not know how to swim, camp is not a luxury. Camp may literally save their life.
Because camp provides an opportunity for growth in social, emotional and physical well-being, camp is not a luxury.
Help us say "yes" to every child who wants to come to camp this summer. Be a part of Project 489.
