Dear Friend

Over this school year, I have watched the young people in our programs learn and grow. As the weather slowly changes, I am looking forward to my first full summer at the Italian Home. The pool will be opening soon, spirited games will be happening on the field, and of course, school vacation for the 80 or so children on our campus is fast approaching.

For a child, there is nothing quite like summer vacation -- getting a break from the classroom, enjoying warmer weather, playing with friends on long days, and attending summer camp! Camp provides a wonderful opportunity for children to continue to pursue their social and emotional goals, all while having the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy nurturing relationships with counselors.  In short, camp is where young people thrive, grow, and dream.

Not every child has the opportunity to experience the caring, enriching programs that a camp experience has to offer. Most of the children in our care do not have the resources to afford a quality camp experience.

It is our goal to make sure all of the children we serve have the opportunity to experience summer camp, and we work with several different programs to get the best experience for each child. Camp prices are not what they used to be – it can cost over $1200 for a quality experience for each camper.

I believe our children are just as deserving of a fun and enriching summer camp experience after they've worked so hard all year. I need your help to raise $30,000 to give every child a great summer experience. Each $150 we raise covers the cost of an entire week of camp for a child this summer. Please help us achieve our 2017 Summer Camper goal.

I hope you have a wonderful summer. Together, we will make sure the young people Italian Home serves get the best experience possible!
