Send UrbanPromise Kids to Summer Camp
With summer around the corner, we are working on sending Urban Promise kids to YMCA Camp Ockanickon. This project was started nine years ago and we have sent 171 kids to summer camp so far. Our goal is to increase the number of campers to 200 in this our 10th year. If you are interested in helping us achieve this goal, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 856-983-0735. Cost per camper is $710 for one week of overnight camp. Any amount is welcome as we group donations together. The principal of the Camden Forward School chooses the children that she thinks would most benefit from Camp. The response from the kids is so heartening and rewarding. It is such an opportunity for them to spend a week of overnight camp in the beautiful Pinelands, making new friends and trying new adventures and discovering more about themselves. Any help would be most appreciated!!
