Making a Difference: Celebrating 150 Years of the Camp Experience through Community Service
A Week Dedicated to Community Service
July 17-23, 2011
This year marks the 150th anniversary of organized camp in America. From the beginning, camp has positively impacted children, youth, and adults — changing millions of lives through the power and magic of the camp experience.
By participating in this week of community service, camps will honor and celebrate 150 years of “paying it forward.” When we teach children and youth to contribute to the world around them, we are fostering personal growth and development. And with over 60 percent of parents reporting that their child continues to participate in activities learned at camp, you can plant the seeds that grow into a lifetime of service to communities… one child at a time.
