Camp Counselor Pizza Party Category: Fund-a-Need
Donated By: Aylin Green

Description: Summer camp parents always rave about our caring, committed, and creative camp counselors. Every summer these young people work hard, many of them on a volunteer basis. We provide them with basic tools they need to succeed including CPR training, conflict resolution, the value of teamwork, and more. To show our appreciation and to help them form a cohesive group, we sponsor a pizza party once at the beginning of the summer and again at the end. Some of our most fond memories are created at these events featuring games, pizza, snacks, and more. Won't you help us make it extra special for them by donating the funds for summer 2019?
