Yesterday, we were joined other members of the Champions Kids Camp Advisory Council and a few Champs (Counselors) on our second trip to purchase gifts for the annual Camper Christmas Party. 3 hours and $3,500 later we were all exhausted, but it was SO worth it!
The goal of the program "Adopt A Camper for Christmas" is to help purchase want and need items for 200 kids; many of which wouldn't have a Christmas celebration at all without our help. For just $50 per camper, we are able to supply them with backpacks, school and art supplies, personal care items and, of course, toys and other want items from their lists. The kids we shop for range in ages between 8-12 and are all survivors of some type of trauma such as an illness, injury, or personal loss.
We set aside 2 shopping trips to fulfill these wish lists, though we occasionally add a third trip because of the amount we need to purchase. Champions Kids Camp is a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations made are tax-deductible.
