LUM Camp – 1 Month Away
Sponsor a Camper
LUM Camp is a scholarship-based camp, meaning LUM only invites children whose parents are not able to pay for the $150 per child cost of camp. The campers’ parents pay only $5 per child, and generous LUM donors cover the rest. LUM Camp is one the finest overnight summer camp programs available to children anywhere. There are so many children who are eagerly awaiting their chance to attend from July 28 – 31.
Your campership will pay for a child’s transportation, room and board, camp activities, books, supplies, and all of our career and vocational programs, in other words everything a camper will need to attend this year’s LUM Camp.
Sending $300 will allow two children to attend LUM Camp
Sending $450 will provide three camperships
$75 will provide half a campership
LUM Camp is one of the finest overnight summer camp programs available to children anywhere. I know of nearly 65 children waiting anxiously to attend. Would you please invest in both their long-term life skills and their short-term fun by offering them the gift of LUM Camp?
