to help inner city children come to Camp
Border Collie For Kids!
We need your
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.
Feeding, housing, and clothing (sneakers, sweatshirts, raingear, etc)
30 children for their summer camp adventure is a costly venture.
One that is SOLELY supported by donations.
We can only continue Camp Border Collie for Kids with your support.
Each summer with inner-city children from New York City and Newark,
include the cost of the following major items:
Housing, Clothing, Food, Beverage, Staff, Supplies, Field Trips, Transportation,
Various Equipment, and Insurance.
The cost, on average,
is $1500 per child for a two-week stay.
Total cost for offering the Camp Program next summer
including building projects
and equipment purchases will be more than $90,000.
Contributions can be made by Sponsoring a Child for
or in whatever amount is possible.
We are truly grateful for your help in making
Camp Border Collie for Kids possible.
Your support can give these children the dream of their lifetime .....A summer in the country with "their" dog.
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.
