Since 1970 the Las Vegas Sun Summer Camp Fund has brought happiness and life-long memories to thousands of children from economically challenged families in Southern Nevada by providing them with a summer camp experience. Summer camp has a profound effect on their emotional and social development by building character, teamwork, and leadership qualities.
We implore you to provide this life-changing opportunity to a deserving Southern Nevada child. Because of many caring individuals, organizations, and corporations, like you, we were able to provide a summer camping experience for 400 children in 2015. Please help us increase our campership in 2016, by donating today!
Every dollar donated to the Las Vegas Sun Summer Camp Fund goes directly toward these camperships. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada (BGCSNV) absorbs all administrative expenses and all contributions are tax deductible. Well managed resident camps such as those available through BGCSNV, Boulder Dam Area Council Boy Scouts of America, Girls Scouts of Southern Nevada, Salvation Army, NV Diabetes Association, Potosi Pines and YMCA are utilized.
Recently the Las Vegas Sun Summer Camp Fund merged with BGCSNV to more directly administer funds and enlist financial support for this worthwhile cause. Charlotte Hill established the fund in 1970 and faithfully championed the campership cause for hundreds of thousands of deserving children in Southern Nevada. Please join us in carrying on this treasured legacy.
Any and all support is wholeheartedly appreciated. Children are our future and we need your support now more than ever to enrich their lives with a camp experience. Please make sure that no needy child is turned away.
