Thanks so much to our wonderful “Summer Smiles” donors in 2021!
We appreciate the amazing “Summer Smiles” donors who helped send 241 kids to camp, including 12 to “one-on-one” camps for kids with special requirements. Donors also provided 200 “Summer Smiles at Home” activity baskets — which included toys, activities, a stuffed animal, and masks.
Your donations gave vulnerable children and youth a summer camp experience they desperately needed and will cherish forever! Thank you!
You can donate NOW to create “Summer Smiles” in 2022.
Summer Smiles camps can become invaluable experiences that children and youth remember forever. Camps allow children and youth to learn new things – about nature and the environment, about our world and about themselves. Camps give them a chance to develop social skills and leadership abilities, to try a new sport, and to boost their self-confidence. More importantly, camps give them a chance to just be themselves.
With your Summer Smiles gift NOW, we hope to give more than 400 children and youth the most amazing summer experience that we can!
We estimate that it will cost an average of $250 for a child to attend a COVID-safe day camp for a week. And, we anticipate that the “Summer Smile at Home” activity baskets and the virtual camps will cost $100 each for children and youth.
Some generous donors give year ’round — with their monthly donation — to ensure that vulnerable children and youth can attend summer camps.
As one monthly donor said: “It’s easy to give a little each month to support children in need. My monthly donation adds up to a large gift and helps sends kids to camp!”
Will you join in and make a donation today to help vulnerable children and youth to attend camp in the summer of 2022?
With your one-time donation now or with your monthly contributions, we hope to send more than 400 children and youth to day- and overnight-camps in July and August 2022.
Will you please make a donation today to help send vulnerable children and youth to “Summer Smiles” camp?
