I want to thank you in advance for allowing me the opportunity to tell you about Country Kids Camp. First, I will start with the basic facts. Country Kids Camp is a summer day camp that runs 15 days from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The camp is a 501C3 that not only hosts camp in the summer, but sponsors over 900 Walton County children who are in need at Christmas through the use of camp funds, donations and private sponsors.
I started this camp 12 years ago as a way to encourage less screen time and more outdoor time. We pride ourselves in allowing children to be children. They play in the dirt, they play with friends, they play in water, they eat popsicles, they learn social skills such as getting along with others, taking turns, and learning how to be good Samaritans. Being a good Samaritan is a lesson we take very seriously at camp and we instill in these children what it means, what it looks like, and how it can change a persons whole life when we are kind.
During camp, we encourage children to participate in Dunk for A Dollar. This is a fundraiser we do for a Walton County child that is battling childhood cancer. Last year we donated $3000 to a little boy named Dax. If you could just see the pride and the joy on these children’s faces when they realize what they have done for someone close to their age; someone they can relate to on many levels; but yet someone who doesn’t have the everyday life that they get to enjoy.
Summer should be filled with children laughing and playing. This summer, even more so than ever before. Our children need this camp. They need to know the world is gonna be ok. They need to know that the life of a child is filled with way more than worrying about a pandemic.
It’s only 15 days every summer. I am asking that you please consider supporting us. We do not want any conflict, hurt feelings, or problems. We simply want to provide local children with a safe, fun, and Christian atmosphere.
