Press Telegram Send-a-Kid-to-Camp Fund
The Press-Telegram Send-a-Kid-to-Camp campaign, launched in 1999, has resulted in hundreds of children reveling in the unique experience of attending a week-long summer camp. For many of these young people, the camping experience is life-changing. The mountain camps are run by the agencies we call the Big Five: Boy & Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts, Camp Fire, Girl Scouts, and YMCA.
2021 Camp Experience
Camps will be open this summer! On May 16, 2021, the Press-Telegram officially kicked off the 2021 campaign. Last year, generous Press-Telegram readers donated approximately $56,000 with the hope that camps would open. Due to the pandemic camps didn’t fully open so those funds will be combined with this year’s fundraising.
Your tax-deductible financial contribution can help provide a child the opportunity to learn and grow during a week-long camp experience.
