A Message from Camp Fire’s Executive Director, Rick Taylor
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thanks to a new community partnership that you made possible, kids at Kent’s Excel Public Charter School now get to take after-school enrichment classes we just started offering there this fall.
They’re cooking, gardening and learning about nutrition. They’re developing leadership skills and getting their student government up and running. They’re playing basketball and board games. They’re creating art and programming Lego robots.
All because of you.
You share Camp Fire’s deep commitment to making sure that all children — not just those who can afford it — have access to fun and engaging activities outside the classroom that awaken their curiosity as they build confidence and social skills.
If it weren’t for your generous support, we would not be able to reach kids like the middle schoolers at Excel, more than half of whom are low-income. By giving to Camp Fire, you give these kids hope. Youth discover their sparks when they see that a caring adult is there for them, encouraging them to venture outside their comfort zones.
Thank you for all you do to move us toward our vision of giving youth in our region’s most disadvantaged communities the opportunity to thrive with Camp Fire.
YOU Make a Difference!
Your investment in Camp Fire is an investment in future leaders, environmental stewards, and selfless community volunteers!
