Today is #givingtuesdaynow , which is a global day of giving and unity in response to the devastation COVID-19. Camp Promise recently had to cancel its summer sessions due to the safety and health concerns related to this terrible disease. In true Camp Promise spirit, however, we are not giving up! We are offering virtual programs now weekly AND we are launching Camp Promise Connect for campers during scheduled weeks of camp. Please consider helping us to still make Camp Promise an amazing week for our campers. https://www.camppromise.org/donate. #jettfoundation #camppromise

We know that social distancing is hard on everyone- the parents, campers, and volunteers that we serve - and adjusting to a new normal can feel uncomfortable. To help keep our community connected, Jett Foundation and Camp Promise are offering online activities and events over the next few weeks. It’s not the same as being at camp, but we hope these virtual activities will help bring us together during these challenging and unprecedented times. Check out our calendar of activities at https://www.camppromise.org/camp-promise-virtual-hangout-hour?view=calendar&month=04-2020. Let us know if you have an activity idea!
