Camp Kern raises money for our Strong Kids “Send a kid to camp” scholarship fund each and every year.  The money goes to help make camp a possibility for all of the kids who want and need camp, but aren’t able to attend.  This year Camp Kern is raising $81,000 to support the fund, so we can send 180 campers to a week of summer camp!

There are a ton of ways to get involved, and make camp possible for needy kids and families in the Dayton area:

  • You can forward a link to our form to your friends:  http://www.campkern.org/getinvolved/kern_strong_kids.pdf
  • You can pledge by text – Text “camper” to 20222 to donate $10
  • You can download the form and make a donation yourself.
  • Kids can even earn a free week of camp when they raise money!
Thank-you to the many families and guests of Camp Kern who so generously donate their treasure, time and talents to this place.  Without volunteer support, Camp Kern couldn’t offer such a rich and engaging experience!
Also, thank-you to posterbrain.com for being our poster supplier!  Their quick turnaround and excellent quality have helped us increase the visibility of the Strong Kids Campaign all around camp!  Check them out the next time you want an awesome custom poster!

Last weekend was the first CIT retreat of Summer 2011!  The future leaders of Camp Kern gathered to bond, prepare, and practice to be counselors.  They also tested out camp’s new bows in archery….

Her is a picture of Maddie, who was the first CIT to shoot an arrow COMPLETELY THROUGH A TIN CAN!  The new bows combine power, ease of use, and safety to make archery one of the coolest places on camp!  Thanks, Maddie, for showing us how it’s done!

Check out the bow she used!  We’ve got 2 so far for camp…more to come!
