With your support, a child can have the opportunity try new things, develop skills and achieve goals alongside first responders who become their trusted role models. Building self-esteem and self-confidence is key for children to have hope for a better, brighter tomorrow.
Camp HEROES gives at-risk youth from economically disadvantaged households the chance to learn new skills and participate in the summer camp experience. VOA hosts the camp in partnership with the Rochester Police Department, Fire Department, American Medical Response and 911 Call Center at the Rochester Rotary Sunshine Camp. First responders volunteer as the camp counselors to share in this fun experience and build better relationships with our city’s youth.
Camp HEROES will take place August 26-29th in 2019. We are always accepting financial donations in addition to donations of the following items for the campers:
- new sleeping bags
- new pillows and pillowcases
- sunscreen (spf 15 or higher)
- new baseball caps
Please email email@example.com if you would like to donate any of these items.
