Giving a Child a Chance!

Christian is one of the sweetest kids you could ever hope to meet. He’s got a great smile, big brown eyes and a cheerful attitude. But, at 8-years-old, Christian had problem.
He couldn’t read.
In fact, he had a hard time reciting the alphabet. It was pretty much guaranteed he would not be promoted to 2nd grade when school started back.
“Christian is exactly the kind of student that Summer KIDS Camp was made for,” says his teacher Ms. Kimball.
Thanks to generous donors, Christian was able to attend Summer KIDS Camp literacy program for 8 weeks during the summer.
And what a difference it has made in his life! Christian is now reading at grade level! Not only that, he will be promoted with his peers to 2nd grade.
“It was just a transformation for Christian,” says Jordan. “The program really clicked with him. It was amazing to watch.”
Not only that, Christian came out of his shell and began participating in class and having fun.
“His confidence skyrocketed,” Jordan says. “It was so cool to see him blossom during the summer.”
Christian was just one of nearly 100 students who benefited from Summer KIDS Camp. And, it was all made possible by people like you who care. Thank you!
