10 Aug A THANK YOU to our Camp Parents!
With the last week of summer camps ending on August 3rd, we would like to thank you for supporting our Summer Nature Day Camps in Cincinnati Parks!
The magical thing about camp is that it continues to make a difference for a child year-round…not just for the days attended. When campers play active nature games, they are not only reviewing lessons taught but learning to be a good sport and a team player. During art projects, they were able to be creative and demonstrate self-expression. On hikes, they gained mindfulness of the world around them and broadened their horizons. With new friends and counselors by their sides, campers gained confidence and felt safe to spread their wings.
Many camp parents made impacts beyond their own child(ren) this year. Through your generosity of monetary donations and camp spots, we were able to provide scholarships for 16 children. Five scholarships were for children in foster homes or in homes of grandparents as newly appointed guardians. The other scholarships went to those of active military families.
We thank you for the gift of camp given to your child(ren) and for the trust you place in us. We look forward to having them continue to learn and grow in our Explore Nature programs!
