Time for Camp!

March 19, 2014

We are excited to announce that the Pohlad Family Foundation has awarded CAC a grant to send kids to camp!   If your child has never gone to camp,  we have the funds to get your child there.  Here is what you need to know:

– The scholarship prioritizes first-time campers.  If you have been to camp in the past, we may not be able to fund it.

– Find out if your child is ready for camp!  Ask our staff for the article on Excited Children, Anxious Parents – 20 questions you should ask.  If in the end you decide camp might be a cool idea, contact us here at the Community Action Center at 507-664-3550.

– If you decide that camping sounds fun, our staff will help you choose a camp, get camp supplies and complete the forms.  Camps must be accredited bythe  American Camp Association.
