Many of us remember these trips. The childhood adventures in the wilderness and under the stars that brought new friendships, greater self-confidence, and so much rejuvenation.
It’s why we put as much into CCN’s end-of-summer camping trip as we can.
This year, in late July, we’ll be taking 12 of our older students on a four day camping trip in Winter Park, CO. These kids will get out of motels, off Colfax, and into the fresh Colorado mountain air. For many of them, it will be their last experience at CCN as they move on to middle school next year. And we want to send them off right with camping under the stars, toasting those tasty s’mores, playing some epic games of capture the flag, and overcoming fears on a wild CO River rafting trip.
But we need your help. We need 20 people to donate $50 in cash or gift cards to either Costco or Safeway for food and supplies to make this happen.
The tents are packed. The river rafting is booked. The goal is set. Now, we just need you.
If donating online:

*We chose Costco because of the bulk/bargains and Safeway because of the close proximity to our campsite.
