Camp Fire has been really busy these past few months that we have barely had time to catch our breath! Below is a summary of the events we just had and the upcoming event we would love for you to participate in.
AIKD: We had our 15th Annual Absolutely Incredible Kid Day event at the Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, California. We were able to get adults to write letters of encouragement to children in the foster care program. These letters were delivered to the San Bernardino County Children Services department where they were distributed to children.
6th Annual Wine Lovers Dinner: We had our 6th annual fundraiser at the Ontario Convention Center and were able to increase our attendance rate. Wehad volunteers come in and help throughout the silent auction and even had a live band perform! The event was a huge success.
Camp Miss Independent: We had our first Camp Miss Independent retreat. Camp Miss Independent is a weekend retreat that aims at teaching young women between the ages of 14-18 financial literacy. We had 41 girls attend Camp Nawakwa and learn the various skills that are required to maintain a healthy financial budget. We are very excited to continue this event next year.
We have camp clean up weekend May 14, 2011 from 8:00am-3:00pm at Camp Nawkwa. We would love your participation in helping maintain Nawakwa clean and beautiful. We plan on cleaning for the majority of the day and will have a dinner and bonfire at night. If you're like me and want to come back on Sunday and would like to participate in the bonfire we can accomodate you in one of our cabins. If you would like to participate please send Jinouth Vasquez an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a phone call at (909) 466-5878.
