Here are a few comments from some of our amazing, ambitious and generous donors that are also passionate about the Summer Campership Program:
“I was never allowed to go to camp as a child. My parents sent my brothers each year. I waited at home to hear their stories of their wonderful experiences. It is 2015 and I want to help these young ladies get to camp. I want them to be able to experience the wind in their hair as they horseback ride. This is the experience I so wanted as a child. God Bless you, Wendy and your 2 Kevins for caring so much. I am proud to help.” – Patricia M., AZ
“Wish I could do more. A great thing to help girls go to sleep away camp. I always wanted to go when I was little. My mother couldn’t afford it.” – Pamela B., NY
“What a nice opportunity to pay it forward. I loved going camping when I was younger and I had some really great memories of my time spent in the great outdoors. My wish for these girls is for them to also have that same experience and make some life-long memories of their own. Nothing better than sitting around the campfire, telling stories, and toasting marshmallows. Very inspired by this cause – Thanks Wendy!” – Karen, NY
“Excellent pay it forward opportunity! When I was a young girl someone sponsored me and I went to camp. I am a grown woman now and I still have fond memories of being at camp. I would love to think that I’m helping make that happen for another young lady! Wendy you’re the Best! Love You and all that you do, ‘How you doin’? ‘” – LaTawna F., Washington
“Hey Wendy, “How you doin?” I agree all girls should have a sleep – away summer camp experience. Family income should not be a deterrent. My own went upstate NY and New Hampshire for 3 to 6 weeks every summer. We all got a break from each other, and the girls have very fond memories which will last forever. It is my pleasure to help.” – Trudi D., MD
“It’s nice to help kids when they want to enjoy the summer and parents can’t afford it. Its a very beautiful idea!!!” William T., NY
