Camp Sue Osborn is a special place for special people. Our mission is to provide excellent, everyday camp experiences for individuals with special needs in Lake and Geauga Counties, Ohio. We offer three camp programs: a two-week day camp, a week-long residence camp, and a three-night Alumni Reunion Camp.
This year we have been hit with funding issues and donations are down. Our programs are in danger of facing serious cuts to camp days, staffing, programming and camperships! We are hoping to raise at $15,000 to cover our funding deficit this year. The first $5,000 raised will be used to keep our Alumni Camp at three days, and the remaining amounts will go toward camperships and programming for Day and Residence Camps.
Our campers look forward to camp all year! Please help us to give them the awesome experience that they have come to expect from Camp Sue Osborn!
Thank you for your support, Westwood Kids!
Let's keep this momentum going! We've reached our goal, but there's still so much to do!!
A very generous anonymous donor just brought us $10,000 closer to our goal! Alumni Camp is SAVED!
Please continuing sharing and donating! This campaign just touches the tip of the iceberg - our deficit next year will be even greater!
THANK YOU!! WOOO!
I started camp in '93 (the year of the tornado) thanks to my 3rd oldest sister who encouraged me to attend after she spent the previous summer there alone for community service through the high school. I fell in love with the camp despite the whole tornado situation and this camp changed my life. This camp is more than just a camp, its my second family through thin and thick. Last year, they definitely showed how much they care, when I came to Alumni Camp after having a rough week. I love you CAMP SUE!! Please save Alumni Camp.
I was 11 years old when I started camp! It took some persuasion to get me to go because I had never been away from home for an entire week. After I got over the initial homesickness, I didn't want to leave. When the week was over, camp was the main point of daily conversations among me and other students who had also attended camp. At 37 years old, the memories of my 10-12 years as a camper are as vivid now as they were back then. I can not say enough about how this organization changed my life! Every child (able-bodied or disabled) deserves to have the camp experience, so let's save Camp Sue!
