How can I Sponsor a Child?
Camp is FREE for children with Sickle Cell Disease. As most of our families are economically disadvantaged, we did not want to turn a child down for this wonderful experience because of their inability to pay for camp. We could use your support in sponsoring a child for Camp! Camp costs the $955 per camper. Please consider making a donation or sponsoring a child for this worthy cause!
