Dear Friends of Camp Wewa:
As you probably already know, Camp Wewa is a kid’s summer camp nestled in pristine woodlands surrounded by lakes in Apopka, FL. Its been owned and operated by the YMCA of Central Florida for more than 62 years, with the sole purpose of offering kids and teens growth opportunities in self-confidence, leadership, friendship and faith, all while they’re having…just a ridiculous amount of fun!
At Camp Wewa, the emphasis is on outdoor fun and adventure, but the result is much greater than that. Adults who have looked back on memories of Camp Wewa often highlight experiences there as some of the very best of their lives. Our young campers gain valuable skills, expand their horizons, and learn that strength has more to do with the size of your heart than the size of your muscles. Our activities are designed to help them develop responsibility, self-esteem, leadership skills and create new friendships through teamwork. At Camp Wewa, strong Christian values are the foundation of all that we do, and even though our goal is to help campers grow, we never sacrifice the fun in the process.
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to attend Camp Wewa, and money should never be an obstacle to enjoying this unique and enriching experience. Thanks to the trust and generosity of families, individuals, corporations and foundations, our scholarship program offers financial assistance to campers who would otherwise be unable to attend camp. Last year, more than 150 campers attended Wewa thanks to the support of these donors. We are so humbled and thankful for this generosity.
In these tough times, the demand for financial assistance is greater than ever. In an effort to increase the number of scholarships for the 2012 camp season, we ask for your generous donation in our campaign to help make camp accessible for every child. All donations are tax deductible and every penny raised goes directly to sending kids to camp.
