Sample 1: General Supporter

I am supporting CAMP, an incredible organization providing safe and fun-filled camping experience to individuals with special needs. During their week away, campers swim, ride horseback, canoe, cook outdoors, and participate in paintball, arts & crafts, archery, and a camp dance. What is so amazing is that each activity is adapted to meet their individual needs. While children are at CAMP, parents receive a much-needed time off from their extraordinary care giving responsibilities. For some families, this is the only break they receive all year!
