CHARITY - IT'S IN US ALL TO GIVE...
“You gotta believe that you get what you give if you give what you’ve got when you get it.”
At each Chapel Program each summer, we teach our campers about the importance of Charity – that Charity is the act of giving without the expectation of anything in return; that the true gift we receive in being charitable is the knowledge that our choices may help others improve their lives and perhaps even spark them to ‘gift if forward’. Camp Tawingo engages in a number of charitable initiatives throughout the summer and throughout the year – at the organizational, staff, and camper levels. We thought you might be interested to read, here, of a few:
“Service is the rent we pay for being.” – Marian Wright Edelman. For us at Camp Tawingo, it is vital that we teach young people the importance of giving to others, and in particular, those less fortunate then themselves…that we teach them how to become citizens of this, their own, and the global community. Thank you to all in the Tawingo community for your help and support in passing on this message.
