Each year the Foundation partners with close to 1,300 youth serving agencies and schools                                                                                                          At the Foundation we often hear from past campers letting us know of their success after

help us to find children who meet our criteria and would benefit from a camp experience.                                                                                                       moved into new stages in their life. The following is a letter written to the Foundation from a
