Support Pretty Lake Camp
Pretty Lake Camp has made an impact on more than 50,000 children since its beginning in 1916. Many of the youth who attended Pretty Lake Camp this past summer would not have had the opportunity to participate in any special summer activities – especially attending a summer camp – were it not for the cost-free programs and services provided here.
The need for your support is great
Each year, we receive approximately 1,200 applications for about 800 slots at camp. Here are a few of the notes that accompany those applications:
“Please accept my child’s application to attend your camp because:
- “My husband and I have recently been laid off and times are very difficult…”
- “I am undergoing treatment for cancer and it’s been very hard on our family – especially our children.”
- “Both of our parents died and I’m just trying to help my little sister smile again…”
When families face stress, uncertainty, and changes, it is often the children who suffer the most. Sometimes, all a child needs is a “vacation” from these daily stressors. Your support can make a lasting impact on a child. You can help give that child a much needed “vacation.”
