27 years of camping!
This summer marks our 27th year offering a summer camping experience to children who otherwise would not have an opportunity to “be a kid”. Whenever possible, we reunite siblings who have been split up in the foster care system and give them a week to be together.
We missed camp last summer due to my back surgery. This year we are beginning our camping season in East Hampton New York reuniting 3 sibling groups who do not live together. My staff includes Luis who is in his second year of college and will be volunteering as a counselor. Luis first attended CAMP ERUTAN as a camper in 2003 with his older and younger sisters. Karen has been a counselor since 1999. In 2003 Karen and her husband adopted Izzie at birth – Izzie will be coming out to camp as a junior counselor. Izzie has been attending CAMP ERUTAN since she was 3 years old.
For most of our campers, CAMP ERUTAN is the only positive influence in their lives. In addition to giving these kids an amazing fun filled week jam packed with positive experiences and unconditional love – we become an anchor in their lives if they choose to keep in touch with us. We have a number of former campers, now with children of their own, who stay in touch with us and reach out for both advise and support.
CAMP ERUTAN continues to exist because of you. With heartfelt appreciation I thank you for your support.
