A letter from the founder:

Dear Friend,

I’m writing to offer you the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a Blessed Child. As the year draws to an end I thought I would try to make good on my 2012 New Year’s resolution and organize my house, when I happened upon a box of Camp Aurora photos. I sat mesmerized as I sifted through this treasure trove… a smiling face beamed at me across the years… she’s all grown up now. She’s Blessed. He’s…oh my gosh…he’s a doctor!

The faces in the photos reminded me of what a difference a summer can make. Every child deserves the gift of summer camp, but not every family can afford it.

I’m hoping that you will be able to help a child make it to Camp Aurora 2017.

Please consider contributing to the Camp Aurora Scholarship Fund.

This year, former campers, Mapolo Buessing, Mika Edgerly and others are taking lead roles at camp because they know what it means to be able to participate in camp. Mika commented about her camp experience, “Without camp, I honestly doubt whether I’d even be Blessed today!” Please think about offering a full or partial scholarship to a child in need from your home community or our district. Any donation will make a difference.

Thank you for thinking of Camp Aurora. We’ll keep you informed our progress.
