Transportation Assistance Program
TAP assists qualified camper families with gas cards to reduce the financial burden getting their child to any of our programs. We never want a child to miss out on the camp experience because of financial strain.
Losing a child is one of the most difficult things a family can endure. The bereavement fund allows us to support families of the children within our programs and honor a child who has passed away. We hope this provides some comfort to our families as they plan services for their loved one.
