Camping for a cause

Summer Campers raise money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital


Summer campers raise money for a worthy cause.

Each year, summer campers participating in New Canaan Public Schools’ “Celebrating American Girls” camp make a point of giving something back to the community during its camp season. This year, the girls all wanted to help children who are struggling with diseases. They decided that St. Jude's Children's Hospital would be a good cause. On the final day of camp, July 21, the girls sold lemonade to fellow campers and their families earning $100 that will be dontated to the hospital. “Celebrating American Girls” is a camp that explores American History through the characters of the American Girl books and dolls, and is part of New Canaan Public Schools’ Summer Enrichment program.
