We hope this finds you well. This summer, Project Kindle, a locally run non-profit organization, will be offering a unique day camp program for children with special needs, chronic illnesses, and other life challenges- Camp Kindle Day Camp. This camp will offer a medically and emotionally supportive environment for each of its participants. Each participant will be paired with a counselor that they will work with in a one-on-one capacity throughout the week of camp. This program will help each child find positive meaning in their life by making friends, having fun, and sharing hopes with others confronting similar circumstances. Additionally, this camp will help primary caregivers by providing respite and necessary time for themselves. This summer day camp experience will emphasize teaching children life skills through math, science, music, and art. We believe that every camper will learn and grow through this program. Eva Payne established Project Kindle in 1998, and the organization has been running various summer camp programs for almost 19 years. For questions, please contact Minnow at firstname.lastname@example.org.
