Thank You-What Has Happened at Camp Horizon

This year has been a difficult and challenging year for many of us.  Due to the pandemic, Camp Horizon had to look at different ways to meet the needs of our youth.  As research highlights, the pandemic has been especially challenging for foster youth as they have experienced the trauma of isolation, separation and feelings of inadequacy.  The pandemic can intensify those feelings for foster youth making it very traumatic and difficult to cope.  So while we were not able to do the in-person summer camp and other in-person activities, we were able to adjust to ensure we continued to meet the emotional and physical needs of our foster youth.  We adjusted our in-person summer camp to a virtual summer camp.  Prior to our virtual sessions, we mailed activites and projects to our youth to complete during the session.  Additionally, we held meaningful crucial conversations during these sessions to help them cope with the challenges of the pandemic.  Additionally, we provided the youth and families with a safe and socially distant Halloween event, opportunity to take family photos and Holiday gifts.   

Our youth and families were very appreciative of the on-going support provided them during these difficult times.  Many expressed the support the feel from Camp Horizon is what they hold on to in the ever-changing times.  Without the supporters and donors, we would not be able to provide this consistent, supportive, and loving environment that the youth yearn for.  You have helped us to continue providing supportive services during the pandemic as well as lay a foundation for our future work.  Thank you again for all you have done to help our mission of working to restore dignity and hope to children, teens, and young adults — empowering them to make good decisions and lead healthy productive lives.
