Girls Can Camp
Girls Can Camp is a camp for girls with disabilities and their friends. We use the beautiful Rotary Youth Camp in Lee’s Summit, MO. Our camp site is fully accessible so that every girl can camp. The staff is made up of dedicated and knowledgeable women who believe that every child should be able to experience the wonder of nature and the magic of camp.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
This summer, we couldn't be in camp due to COVID-19 but we did have "Camp in a Box" for some amazing campers! We couldn't have done this without funding from the Rotary Cares Grant and the Rotary Auxiliary! Some of our staff got to come on site to organize, pack, and then film songs was also greatly appreciated. We have had emails from campers and their families thanking us for all we’ve done. Here are some snippets of thank yous.
“Oh. My. Word! The camp-in-a-box you dropped off yesterday was A M A Z I N G!!!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes!”
“She's been doing camp activities each day. She reads two of the cards each day, so that she will have several days in a row of mail, just like when she's at Rotary.”
“I did some camp stuff this weekend it was fun and I made s'mores last weekend“
Thank you again for your financial support so we could bring some ‘camp magic’ to our girls this summer even if we couldn’t physically be together.
