Our 7th Annual Acorns to Oaks Gala was a great success!

Held on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at Spring Mill Manor…

Our 7th annual gala called on you to “be here” for the kids…
…and you came through! Every year, you show your support of our campers by turning out for this gala event featuring cocktail hour, silent auction, dinner, award presentations, dancing… and this year was no different. Thanks to all who attended, supported, and contributed!

You Can Have an Impact on a Child's Life.

Summer camp experiences change the lives of children, showing them limitless possibilities…

Did you know that children who go to camp are more likely to gain confidence and skills that foster better social and emotional development—even after they go home? And that campers are more likely to make new friends, respect themselves and others, and set their own goals — all because of their experiences at camp?

Help us to foster their personal growth through unique outdoor experiences…
