Fly Rock's Daughter - Uganda to NC

If you've visited Camp Sea Gull, in Arapahoe,  North Carolina within the past 17 years than chances are you've seen or met the one and only Rock!

Our friend Rock travels from Uganda every Summer to the Land of the Pine to teach campers how to sail, grow counselor teams, see old friends, and much much more. He has been doing this every summer for months at a time for almost twenty years! 

In that time he has never been able to bring any of his family to the United States. It has been one of his deams to show them where he works during the summer. 

 Those who know Rock, know how hard he works helping manage the sea program, how much of role model he is to those around him, and how he treats his friends like his own family.  His "Camp Family". 

The goal for this Campaign is to raise enough money to bring Rock's oldest daughter to America to see him during the Summer of 2019. This will be the time right after her University Graduation! For one person traveling from Uganda to The US round trip would be around $2500.  If we surpass this goal than we will be able to potentially reach more of his family.

If you Love the Rock as much as Camp 1 Kids Love Fireballs then show that love by donating to help make Rock's Dream a Reality!

Please share with any you think would be interested in assisting.
