Send Hannah to Camp Cayuga!

Help us send Hannah to Camp Cayuga! We hope this video gives you an idea of just how amazing & life-changing summer camp can be for new teen.

We're looking to raise money to send my 12 (almost 13) year-old cousin to camp for four weeks this summer in the Pocono mountains.

This will be Hannah's first time at camp, and we think it's the perfect age to spend the summer trying new sports and activities before she begins the eighth grade. Hannah is interested in gymnastics, dancing, track, and the arts, so we hope she'll be able to spend some time practicing her interests while meeting new friends from all over the country.

Hannah will be able to part-take in horseback riding, swimming, ropes courses, rock climbing, zip lines, hiking on mountain trails, back packing, canoe & tubing trips, circus acts, flying trapeze, tetherball, gymnastics, land & water sports, water slides, baseball, lacrosse, cheerleading, archery, painting, ceramics, and more.

The money requested for our GoFundMe is a discounted early-registration rate. If Hannah attends from August 5th-August 18th of 2018, the cost is $1900 which includes board, lodging, on-site nurse facilities, and program supplies. There is a $135 "Canteen Fund" fee which pays for her camp t-shirt, laundry for the summer, a 10-day snack credit for in-between meals, and other small expendables, bringing the 2-week camp total to $2035.

We know this seems expensive, but comparatively, similar sleep-away camps (with smaller facilities) can cost upwards of $7000 for 4 weeks.  Hannah will be driven to camp by her parents, about 3 hours from Philadelphia. Her aunt, uncle and cousins live about 25 minutes away in Jessup, PA. This camp location is close enough to home for her parents to have peace of mind, but far enough for Hannah to feel a sense of independence for her summer vacation.

We'd be so grateful for any donations received, and hope you can imagine how excited Hannah will be when she arrives on her first day at Camp Cayuga this summer!
