“Send a Kid to Camp” Event
It’s easy to help!
Our Annual Giving Campaign “Send a Kid to Camp” program provides scholarships for underserved, underprivileged, deserving kids to attend summer camp and participate in valuable outdoor education opportunities. Many children never have the opportunity to experience the magic of camp and it is our goal to ensure that every child has this opportunity. Camp helps kids to do better in school, lessening the detrimental effects of summer learning loss and builds invaluable self-confidence.
The following is a snapshot of our achievements in 2018:
- 350 children were awarded scholarships to attend day and overnight camp sessions.
- 200 overnight campers participated in financial literacy camp.
- 48 children served from the Family Justice Center
- Partnered with organizations including Children’s Home Society, Partnership Village, Habitat for Humanity, North Carolina Bankers Association, Camp Hope and Camp Corral.
- 165 Military campers were served, across the southeast with priority given to children of disabled, wounded or fallen parents.
