I believe deeply in the power of the summer camp experience and I especially love Camp Fitch YMCA. Summer camp has the power to change lives. Experiencing camp can help a kid grow in confidence, independence, empathy, and joy.
Camp allows kids to take risks, challenge themselves, form new friendships (that can last a lifetime!), and truly unplug to appreciate the outdoors. For the last seven years we have built an event that has expanded the scholarship fund at Camp Fitch—allowing more children than ever the opportunity to experience camp. Last year we raised over $90,000 through the Polar Bear Plunge and we hope to increase our fundraising this year. So for the seventh year in a row I will be plunging into a very frozen Lake Erie on March 10th.
With this effort more children will be able to experience the profoundly life changing impact of a week at Camp Fitch.
Thanks in advance for considering a cause so near and dear to my heart!
