During the month of December, CAMP! is the designated nonprofit for the Movies at Main Street Landing in Burlington. There’s a different film each Tuesday, and CAMP! will be there selling snacks and collecting donations. Thanks to Mariah Riggs at Main Street Landing for inviting us to participate and to Mason Rachampbell for coordinating our efforts. Come out and join us for a great film each week!
Getting some holiday shopping done online? Please consider using Amazon Smile and selecting Camp Exclamation Point as your beneficiary. Amazon will give us a small donation as a percentage of your purchase, and these can really add up. It is an easy way to help make a difference!
We thank Katie Ballard and the folks at Spookyville for inviting CAMP! to participate in their annual family Halloween event for the second year in a row. CAMP! staffed the ticket tent and helped with a variety of other tasks, and will therefore benefit from the proceeds. Despite some cold and soggy weather, it was a fun event for all. We thank all the CAMP! volunteers who came out to help, and in particular we are in debt to Robyn Myers Moore for organizing all our efforts as well as going above and beyond in numerous ways. Bravo!
Oh, what a week! CAMP! 2016 came and went in a flash, but we will hold on to our memories for months to come. A huge thank you to our volunteers, partners, and donors who make this possible. Check out our 2016 CAMP! slideshow, and visit our Facebook page for more remembrances and to share your thoughts.
Big thanks to Alaina Pinto from Local 22 and Local 44 for visiting us on Wednesday morning, and to the talented storytellers Simon Brooks, Odds Bodkin, and Angela Klinger for captivating us with your wondrous tales on Wednesday night. We were fortunate to receive two books for each camper from the Children’s Literacy Foundation once again, and we thank author Marv Klassen-Landis for helping with the CLiF program.
