Golf Outing Fundraiser
The Salvation Army will be hosting its annual golf outing, Tee It Up Fore Kids, on June 16th at White Hawk Country Club in Crown Point, Indiana. The funds raised this year will be used to send kids from Lake County to The Salvation Army’s Wonderland Camp in Wisconsin.
The Salvation Army Wonderland Camp and Conference Center was founded in 1903 to provide a pleasant retreat for low-income mothers and children that allowed them to escape the stresses of everyday life and experience the scents and sights of the outdoors. Today, Wonderland Camp serves many at-risk children every summer. Their lives are enriched physically, personal and spiritually through healthy outdoor activity in a safe and caring environment in which children can learn and grow. Most campers who may live only a few miles from Lake Michigan, report that they never had swimming lessons. Some may have never climbed a ropes course, enjoyed boating or kayaking, or sung songs around campfire. For many children, camp is more than a vacation, it is life changing.
Last year, 353 children and families from Lake County, experienced 1,783 combined refreshing days at Wonderland Camp and Conference Center. It costs The Salvation Army approximately $120 to send one child to camp. This includes transportation, five-days and four-nights stay, meals, supervision and full day programming.
