Join Us At Camp Games This Saturday In NYC!

Dear CECBR Alumni & Staff,

We are excited to let you know that Camps Equinunk and Blue Ridge will have a team for the second annual Camp Games for a Cause fundraising event sponsored by the American Camp Association, New York and New Jersey on Saturday May 19th at the Columbia University sports facilities in New York City.  We want you to join our team as we compete against hundreds of other camp alumni, staff and friends in this mega “camp color war/camp Olympics” style event, filled with games, food and of course, plenty of camp spirit! Events will include activities such as basketball shootouts, tug-of-war, track and field events, dance competitions and much more! No need to start training for the day – it will be a day of friendly competition and there will be plenty of activities for non-athletes.

The event will raise money for a wonderful cause; providing low income children with a positive camp experience through scholarships, trainings and program support.  As past campers yourselves, I’m sure you can agree that a positive camp experience has immeasurable benefits. This is a wonderful way to help provide low income children with the opportunity to be a part of that very special experience.  Even if you cannot join the team, you can still help by donating to the cause and spreading the word about the event.

Join our Camp Team:

Anyone over 16 years of age can join our Camp Games team.  To join us for this fun event, visit www.campgamesforacause.org and join our camp’s team!  This is a great way to see old camp friends too – we encourage you to reach out to all of your old camp friends and register together! Upon registration, you will immediately be able to create your own donation page and start raising money to help this momentous cause. You can even receive Community Service Credit for attending this years event!

Donate to the Cause:

If you cannot make the event, any donation you could make to the cause will help other children have the same positive camp experience that camp gave you each summer. Just go to www.campgamesforacause.org to make a donation. In the spirit of healthy competition, we would ask that you click onto our Team’s page through the Team rank on the right side of the website and make a general Team donation. We want our camp’s team to have either the greatest number of donors or to raise the most money.

Spread the Word about the Cause:

Help us spread the word by liking Camp Games for A Cause on Facebook, writing about the event on your wall or reaching out to friends who you think might want to provide support.  If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us, or by emailing our Program Director – Scott Rosenbluth at scott@cecbr.com. We know you understand the importance of this cause and we hope you will consider being part of this groundbreaking event!

Warm Regards,

– The CECBR Team
