Summer Kids Camps Scholarships – 8th Year

The Summer Kids Camps Program begins on Monday, June 4, 2018 at the Bay Club – The Gateway.  The Camps run through the last week of August.

This is the 8th year FOGG has worked with this Program, and, thanks to you and your tax deductible donations, we are confident that it will be a success.

This Scholarship Program allows youngsters 5 to 12 years of age, from low income housing to attend this one of a kind activity program.  The kids participate in swimming and tennis lessons, social activities including art programs, and a number of team programs, some selected by the youngsters themselves.

FOGG cannot sign up a youngster until we know the donations are available.  And, with the total support of the Bay Club, who provides one dollar for every dollar we raise, we can sponsor two kids for the cost of one.

FOGG is lucky to have Lela Waltjer as Camp Director and her very competent assistant Ranya Abdelfattah leading an excellent group of instructors and volunteers.  They guide the youngsters through seven hours of instruction and games, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

FOGG could not have provided that financial support for seven years without the generosity of so many individuals, businesses and corporations.

We wish to have a real head start on sign ups, and with your donations we can have the majority of youngsters ready by June 4th.

Please send your summer Kids Camp Scholarship Program tax deductible donations to PDF/FOGG, P.O. Box 2294, San Francisco, CA 94126.  On the memo line write “2018 Scholarship Fund.”

Should you prefer to donate online, you can do so at this FOGG website.  Click on the ‘Donate to 2018 Summer Kids Camp’ yellow donation button.

Thanks again to so many of you who have supported the Scholarship Program in the past.  We hope you will make your donation soon.
