Every year at YWCA Camp Tapawingo, we have many conversations with parents who would desperately love to be able to send their daughter to camp. I talked to one parent today who expressed it better than I can:” I want to be able to provide my daughter with one thing that makes her feel good when so much in her life is sad.”
It was such a privilege for me to be able to make the phone call last spring to another parent and say that we had some funding to help Sydney go to camp. The relief in her mother’s voice was very real. The experience Sydney had was important not just at the time but as a talisman all year – to hold on to her memories and look with anticipation to another summer of fun and being a kid.
Thank you to Kids In Camp in helping us provide this extraordinary experience to kids who just need time to be a kid, to feel good about themselves and to stretch their wings.
I was very excited last winter to read about the KIC program in an OCA news email. At Selah Camp we have never denied any child the opportunity to have an amazing and often life changing camp experience simply because of lack of money. Your program allowed many additional children this opportunity to make life long memories as we were able to invite several more families to Selah Camp. The Kids In Camp program is a great way to allow the low income families the same opportunities in life as other families. The children that were able to come to our summer camps because of KIC funds were very excited with the chance they were given. Since the cutoff date is the beginning of February, this allowed us to know early that we knew we had enough money in our regular set aside amount to cover any late registrations that would also need support. Thank you so much for allowing Selah Camp to be part of this great program to help less fortunate families still be able to send their kids to camp. Thank you also for being so easy to work with and understanding when information gets delayed from families. I look forward to working with you again this year.
Camp Kodiak is a residential summer camp for children & teens with and
without Learning Disabilities, NLD, ADHD and Asperger Syndrome. Because of
our 2-to-1 ratio, professional staff and specialized programs, our fees need
to be quite substantial to cover our costs. We do what we can to help, but
every year we have to turn away deserving campers whose parents are unable
to pay our fees. We really appreciate the assistance provided to these
families by Kids in Camp.
