Since the early 90’s, our firm has been opening its doors by awarding students across Southern California with rewarding educational opportunities. However, when it comes to providing a safe place for children in need, Send-A-Kid-to-Camp is an inspirational organization that brings new meaning to the term ‘community service’.
“Kids to Camp offers a cool and refreshing respite from the hardships of life for these kids,” said Cheryl Carter, Owner of Johnny Rebs restaurants. “If we can offer these young people a glimpse of a good life to expand their vision, create friendships and build self-confidence, what better way to offer hope.”
In an environment created just for them, children learn real life skills, develop self-esteem, and gain a sense of independence and community. Whether children are playing, exploring nature, conquering new heights, or becoming part of a camp family, they are creating memories that will last a lifetime.
The Press-Telegram and the Long Beach Community Foundation have partnered to send kids to local mountain camps operated by Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA, Camp Fire USA, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
