Connecting With Our Community

We have partnered with Camplify NC since its beginning in 1994. Each summer we donate a Green Cove session and a Mondamin session to provide local low-income children "a series of camp-based and experiential learning programs to teach kids-in-need the life skills required to succeed and become the leaders of tomorrow." This article shines a spotlight on why many camps in Western NC are involved: "If the spirit of camp is camaraderie, then it’s time to challenge the trajectory of camps by collaborating within our communities. In addition to recruiting families from Southeast Asia or traveling to host camper reunions in Texas, consider something radical. What would it mean to extend equitable camp right past your fence?"
