Summer is quickly approaching and our Outreach contributions for May are supporting these two wonderful summer camp programs in Michigan:
Camp Talahi, located in Howell, Michigan, offers a spiritually enriching environment wherein one grows to a better understanding of God, oneself, and one another. Camp Talahi, formed by a consortium of Michigan UCC members and ministers, provides an “up-north” Christian retreat experience. Overnight summer camping opportunities for children ages 7 to 18 are offered. Campers participate in many different activities; including hiking, canoeing, arts and crafts, the Adventure Course, dance, and drama. As a nonprofit organization, your financial contributions help Camp Talahi to spread the joy of camping to children of all ages and backgrounds.
Kids on the Go is a pediatric nonprofit summer program that provides free physical, occupational and speech therapy for children (ages 3 - 12) with medical diagnoses that include down’s syndrome, autism, fragile X syndrome, developmental delays, apraxia, hydrocephalous and cerebral palsy. Kids on the Go has been filling the summertime gap for special needs children from the Grosse Pointes, St. Clair Shores, and Harper Woods at no cost since 1999. Your donation this month will help provide scholarships to allow special needs children to attend a camp that provides physical, academic, and social growth as well as fun.
Please consider spreading the gift of summer camp this year. Your donations may be placed in the blue or yellow outreach envelopes with the notation of “summer camp.” Contributions will be split equally between the two camp programs.
Thank you for your consideration.
