The Best Day Ever at Summer Day Camp, held Friday, July 8, was filled with fun, fun, and more fun.


The day was packed with surprises including water balloons, playing sports with soccer balls two times the size of campers, and themed costumes for each division. All activities had a special spin to them, and counselors and campers were oozing with enthusiasm. The Best Day Ever would not be complete without a sweet treat, and campers’ wishes were granted when an ice cream trucks rolled onto both our campuses to end the day on the highest note.  


Smiles were beaming from ear to ear; it was a day campers will never forget.


Now, it’s the campers’ turn to give the fun-filled Summer Day Camp experience to others. Coming off the Best Day Ever, we are launching our annual Coins for Campers fundraiser.  During the week of July 11 to July 15, we’re challenging campers to bring in pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters to support our camp scholarship fund.  


Campers will come together to give even more children the experience of a lifetime. Last year’s fundraiser was record breaking, bringing in $22,000 benefiting camp scholarships.


How far can we go this year? With your help, the sky is the limit! You can make a difference in the community.
