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:

  • Chapel offerings that go to such organizations as the Horizons of Friendship, A Gift or the Next 100 Years, and most predominantly, the Huntsville Hospital Foundation;
  • Sponsoring local sports teams and the arts through Huntsville Minor Hockey, the Huntsville Festival of the Arts, and the Huntsville Rotary Club;
  • Giving to Camp Sizanani/Global Camps Africa (http://www.globalcampsafrica.org/) through money that comes from family’s who choose to e-mail their campers;
  • Trail and site maintenance on local Lake Vernon sites as well as trip sites in the Kipawa Forest Reserve; and
  • Multiple camperships through Kids in Camp, AMICI, the local chapter of Children and Family Services, and the Jack Pearse Memorial Campership Fund.  For more information on some of these please click here.

 

“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.

Sending children to a residential, or day camp, builds resilience.
Published on February 5, 2012 by Michael Ungar, Ph.D. in Nurturing Resilience.
I recently spoke to 300 camp directors about how to make children more resilient to life stress.
 
Summer camps, we discovered, are perfect places to help children optimize their psychosocial development...
