Let's send a cabin full of kids to camp (Spin for Kids is October 20, 2019)
Thank you for your continued support in helping Camp Twin Lakes send children with medical and life challenges to summer camp! We are wrapping up camp season now, and have served 3,600 children with medical and life challenges this summer.
- I've witnessed children who are dependent ventilator equipment for breathing be able to go to overnight camp for the very first time and climb a rock wall, zip line, and even get in the swimming pool safely!
- I've seen foster kids who are separated from their siblings in different foster homes be reunited for a week at camp where something as simple as celebrating a birthday together is a cherished moment
- I've seen children who require chemotherapy, dialysis, and complicated medical care experience the joys of childhood while their medications are safely administered and managed by doctors and nurses who generously volunteer their time.
- I cheered teams of wheelchair athletes in one of the most competitive wheelchair basketball games I've ever seen....after they learned how to shoot a basketball from their wheelchair and had access to specially designed chairs at their adaptable sport camp.
On October 20th, I will be riding in our annual Spin for Kids cycling ride to raise money to send more kids to camp! We subsidize 70% of the cost of camp for each child ($550) and will served more than 10,000 campers this year. My goal is to send a whole cabin full of kids to camp! (10 kids!)
Camp Twin Lakes has changed my life, and I watch how the camp experience changes the lives of our campers, volunteers and summer college staff every day. Your gift will make a big impact in the life of a child.
100% of the money you donate goes directly to campers at Camp Twin Lakes, so your gift will truly make a difference in a child's life! Thank you for making a difference in the life of a child, and for supporting me! Love, Jill
