We believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn, play, and grow in the outdoors
Since 1981 Genesee Valley has impacted tens of thousands of students and campers through our team building and summer camp programs, giving them opportunities to work with others, over-come challenges, gain new experiences, build confidence, and connect with nature.
This Fall, we are committing ourselves to those who cannot financially experience the mission we so strongly believe in.
WE NEED YOUR HELP:
This Giving Tuesday, we want to do our part to give back to the many students, families, and schools who are not financially able to provide their children with the opportunity to grow and learn at Genesee Valley. Over the next 2 weeks, we are asking you to help us raise $10,000 by December 31st to go directly towards our “Place to Grow” Scholarship Program.
WHO WILL WE SERVE?
Our “Place to Grow” Scholarship fund will be used to give low income families the opportunity to send their children to summer camp. Each summer, we are able to provide about a dozen children the gift of summer camp. This year, we want to double that.
The Scholarship Fund will also be used to bring Title 1 School students to Genesee Valley for Educational Field Trips. Many schools wish to provide their students with experiential learning opportunities but aren’t able to do so because of lack of funding and financial restraints.
WHY ARE WE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS?
We believe in the power of experiential education. We believe that it is vital for children to learn how to work together, listen to one another, make compromises, challenge themselves, and accomplish more than they thought they ever could.
