Thank you so much for your generous donation to Camp Horizon. Every dollar helps fulfill our mission as we work to restore dignity and hope to children, teens, and young adults in foster care who have been abused and neglected – empowering them to make good decisions and lead healthy, productive lives.

In the month of October, we put our mission into action during our Leadership Development Program (LDP). LDP is a weekend of programming for our teen campers where we focus on leadership skills, building strong relationships, and planning for the future while continuing our emphasis on Camp Horizon’s 3 R’s: Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience. Campers enjoy the activities, but the highlight of the weekend is always reuniting with friends and counselors they grew to know over the years at summer camp.

As December nears, we prepare for the festivities of the holiday season. In the fall, we ask our campers to provide a wish list of what they would like to receive for the holidays. Through donations and an amazing sponsor, we are able to provide our campers with both practical items such as clothing and supplies for school, as well as something of off their wish list. Once items are collected, we host our annual wrapping party. Here our teenagers wrap gifts for the younger children, while volunteers wrap for the teenagers. One week later, the entire Camp Horizon family comes together for a holiday celebration. Rumor has it Santa is even making an appearance to deliver the gifts this year!

As always, we thank you for supporting Camp Horizon. Through your donation, you provide a lasting impact in the lives of children who are often too easily forgotten, marginalized, and under-resourced.

 

Sincerely,

The Camp Horizon Team

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of Georgia youth in foster care. With your generous support, we are able to expose children to the joy of summer camp. In July, we hosted 40 campers who learned to swim, horseback ride, and to build positive peer relationships.  Our campers expressed their emotions through art therapy programs, they played, smiled and made new friends.

We offer self-esteem building activities to provide young campers with the personal affirmations and coping skills they need to value themselves and to make positive life decisions.  Camp Horizon is a safe haven for children who have been bruised and abused, we nurture the whole child. Each of our activities is designed to rebuild the self worth of our campers.  At camp, our kids are happy. We stay connected to our campers throughout the year, to offer our continued support.

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of children who need your help.

 

Sincerely,

 

The Camp Horizon Team

CAMP HORIZON HAPPENINGS

Last weekend (November 3-5), we held our annual Ledership Development Program (LDP) Weekend Retreat; our LDP program is an important time for our teen campers as they approach the period in their life where they will have to “age out” of foster care and become fully independent at age 18.

Please mark your calendar for these upcoming Camp Horizon events:

December 2 (11am to 3pm) - Camp Horizon's LDP Gift Wrapping Party! Get in the holiday spirit by wrapping presents (for our younger campers) with our teens, playing games, and enjoying a delicious lunch! Please let our program director Amy Orr (Amy.Orr@camphorizon.net) know if you can help with set-up, clean-up, or transportation from one of the local DFCS offices.

December 8 (7pm-10pm) – Join us for an evening of music at the Camp Horizon Winter Concert held at the First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta. Music provided by Camp Horizon’s own band, The Hug Rounds, and some very talented guests featuring Grammy nominated pianist John Burke and Dane Hildreth. There will be music, camp stories, and a lot of fun. The concert is free, but there is limited seating, so tickets are required and can be reserved by using the link below. We will be accepting donations at the event, all of which will be used to provide more programs for Camp Horizon campers. https://www.eventbrite.com/o/camp-horizon-15672438458

February 17 - Please SAVE THE DATE for Camp Horizon's 2nd Annual Foster the Funk fundraising event benefiting Atlanta's youth in foster care. Last year, this event sold out in just a couple of weeks, so be sure to check back with us in EARLY JANUARY when tickets go on sale!

Thank you for your continued support,
