Kids Camp Scholarship Update…
FOGG wants to give you the good news update on our Kids Camp Scholarship Program.
We are happy to say that 24 kids can attend Camp this year!
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we have received enough donations to sponsor 16 kids for this year’s Camp. And, thanks to the cooperation of Western Athletic Clubs, managers of our community outdoor recreation center (Bay Club at the Gateway), for every two kids that FOGG supports, they will sponsor another child. We sponsor 16, they sponsor 8. That’s a total of 24.
The Summer Kids Camps begin this first week of June and will continue to the end of August.
FOGG initiated the Scholarship Program three years ago. Our goal is to provide funding to allow youngsters from low income housing from many San Francisco neighborhoods to attend this one of a kind summer activity Program. The Program provides instruction in swimming and tennis, and other recreational and social activities. Many of the instructors are former Kids Camp members who return to share the wonderful experience they were provided.
FOGG is pleased that we have doubled the number of children sponsored from last year, and hopes to continue this Scholarship Program for many years to come.
Again, thanks to all FOGG supporters who provided the financial support for this year’s Summer Kids Camps.
