MAY 19th, 2012: 
A special night to help inner city children come to 
Camp Border Collie For Kids! 
We need your help!

Every May, we hold a fantastic fundraiser in New Jersey to raise funds to bring 30 kids to camp this summer. They come from Newark, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Harlem, living in very violent, distressed situations. At Camp Border Collie for Kids, the kids experience the healing of loving Border Collies, bonding with a rescue dog that they train and care for while at the Farm, all part of The Canine Assisted Learning Program. CLICK HERE to learn more and see the CBS documentary  
We must raise $35,000 to sponsor the children.

HELP SEND A CHILD TO CAMP IN 2012

We have many children who want to come to Camp in 2012, so we need your kindness and caring to make that possible!! Your tax-deductible donation makes a big difference to an inner city child who would otherwise have no way to learn about the love of dogs, the safety of nature, the kindness of strangers and the caring created in the powerful experience of this camp. CAMP BORDER COLLIE FOR KIDS makes a difference! We hear it over and over again.. the children are impacted throughout the year, sharing their stories of the summer with the dogs. The schools tell us that the children have a renewed sense of learning. They consider the summer camp at Glen Highland Farm to be critical in keeping these at-risk children focused productively. We know we are making a difference and most importantly, we need your help to continue.

For a little over $5.00 a day, you can reach into the life of a child and transform their hearts and mind. The $1500 to sponsor a child for the whole summer session is an investment in a future adult who impacts all our lives. Please consider a full session sponsorship or become an ANGEL, helping with any amount you can. For $750, you can sponsor a child for a week. Or consider giving the gift of Camp in the name of someone else you care about who also cares about children.

$1500 FULL SUMMER SESSION SPONSORSHIP
$750 ONE WEEK SESSION SPONSORSHIP
