Help Transform Lives: Send 77 Kids in Need to Camp Mini-Yo-We this Summer

Camp Mini-Yo-We's "S'more Smiles: Sweeten the Summer for 77 Kids in Need" campaign aims to provide life-changing experiences for these families.

Hear from families that your gift will help…

A family, now able to contribute more to Camp fees after receiving financial assistance, still needs support to continue sending their children to Camp Mini-Yo-We.

"We're so thankful for the sponsorship that let our kids, Sofia and Lucas, go to Camp Mini-Yo-We last year. Our financial situation is better now, but we still can't afford the full camp fee. We'd really appreciate any help you can give to keep this camp tradition going for our family." - Maria

A resilient single mother seeks partial assistance to give her children another Christian camp experience and her youngest their first overnight camp.

"I left an abusive marriage when my youngest was 7 months old. I'm asking for a bit of help to send my kids, Emma and Noah, to Camp Mini-Yo-We. Last year, Emma went and had a great time, and I want her to have that Christian camp experience again. This would be Noah's first time at overnight camp, and any support you could offer would mean so much to us." - Sarah

Ukrainian newcomer parents, now working full-time, seek help to provide their daughters with a life-changing camp experience and a sense of normalcy.

"Camp Mini-Yo-We could offer our daughters, Anichka and Natalia, a sense of normalcy and a chance to make new friends in our new home country. We believe this opportunity can help them heal from the challenges we've faced." - Olena & Andriy

A grandparent battling cancer strives to send their 8-year-old grandchild with ADHD to a Christian camp for guidance and faith-based connections.

"I want to give my grandson, Timothy, the opportunity to connect with other kids who share our faith, and I believe attending a Christian camp like Mini-Yo-We can provide that guidance and support he needs, especially during these tough times." - Susan

A family with a Camp Mini-Yo-We legacy requests assistance to offer their son the same enriching experience they had, despite financial challenges.

"My husband Jack and his siblings went to Camp Mini-Yo-We when they were kids, and they loved it. We really want our son Liam to have that same experience, but we're struggling with money right now. Any help you could give us to send Liam to camp would be amazing." - Emily

A single parent with a spinal disease hopes for assistance to send their son to camp, as they can no longer provide that experience themselves.

"As a single dad with a spinal disease, I can no longer share the joy of camping with my son, Michael. I'm hopeful that with some assistance, he can attend Camp Mini-Yo-We and create cherished memories while experiencing the outdoors." - Alex

A single mother, noticing positive change in her daughters after camp, seeks assistance to send them again amidst rising living costs.

"After attending Camp Mini-Yo-We last year, I saw such a positive change in Sarah and Emily. I wish I could afford to send them again, but with the rising cost of living, it's just not possible without help." - Lisa

A family inspired by friends' positive stories about Camp Mini-Yo-We requests financial help to offer their children a memorable summer filled with growth and bonding at camp.

"Our children, Jack and Ava, have been so inspired by their friends' stories of Camp Mini-Yo-We. We want to give them the same opportunity to grow, bond, and create lasting memories, but we need financial assistance to make it happen." - Mark & Meaghan
