CAMP FOR THREE GRIEVING KIDS
will you help me bring the camp magic to life?
For Camp Court 2021, join me in sending 3 grieving kids to a week of Experience Camps.
A little background on Camp Court & the 2021 goal:
2018: Camp Court was created. Within a month we had a camp, a plan, and 34 RSVPs. Ya'll showed up and made my camper dreams come true. My dad died. I heard the news, towel in hand as I was about to step out onto the docks of Camp Court to look up at the starry night sky.My world shifted upside down. Your camp spirit, love and support was what got me through.
2019: We showed up bigger & better than before. 50+ registrations for Camp Court. Everyone still paid a $50 Registration Fee. Yellow Team won the Color Wars. We hoisted the Yellow Team bandana on the flagpole. Ya'll reminded me my Dad was still there.
2020: My goal was to match 2019 in spirit (and numbers!) to send one grieving kid to camp. 50 campers. Fifty ($50) Registration Fees. $2,500. One fully-funded week of Experience Camps for one grieving kid. We did it. We did it in under 48 hours! In fact, we ended up fundraising over $5,000 to send TWO kids to camp.
- It is my 30th birthday.
- It is the 3 year anniversary of my Dad dying.
- My Dad loved nothing more than his 3 kids.
SO... WE ARE FUNDRAISING TO COLLECTIVELY SEND THREE GRIEVING KIDS TO CAMP (THAT IS $7,500!) AND WE ARE BRINGING THE CAMP MAGIC BACK TO LIFE FOR OUR 3RD ANNUAL CAMP COURT!
