Help Me Send A Child to Camp!

YMCA Camp Woodstock has been a very important part of my life since my first summer there at age ten. Since that first summer, I have spent thirteen consecutive summers there, both as a camper, a counselor, and in other leadership positions. Camp Woodstock has been a place I've called home since age ten and it is the place where I have learned, played, made lasting friendships, and grown into the strong, independent person that I am today.

I want to help a child access the opportunities that Camp Woodstock afforded me. I will be running the Providence Marathon on Sunday, May 6th, and I have decided to take this opportunity to raise money to fund a campership for a child who otherwise wouldn't be able to go to camp.  I am hoping to raise enough money to cover the cost of a full two-week session at camp and give a child the opportunity to spend their summer at Camp Woodstock and have a safe and empowering place to learn, play, and call home.

Thank you so much for your support!
