Camp Lighthouse 2015

About This Campaign

We need to raise $43,000 for Camp Lighthouse’s 56th season. We are very grateful, but to open the doors on time, we need your continued support now. If you haven’t already done so, please send your tax-deductible donation today. It costs Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind approximately $1,000 per child for a week of camp at the Silver Spring YMCA. The campers especially look forward to the games, arts & crafts, and field trips—but, most importantly, they enjoy doing these activities with their peers. In the words of a camper’s parent, "Being in a camp that is only for children who are blind or low vision helps my daughter feel okay about her vision. It lets her connect with other children who encounter similar issues in their lives and can understand her issues in a way a sighted person cannot. She has made a lot of friends and really feels like she fits in at camp. In tough times like these, your gift makes a difference. With your help, we will be able to open Camp Lighthouse again for its 56th summer! In tough times like these, your gift has double the impact—with your help, we will be able to open Camp Lighthouse again for its 56th summer! Thank you for your support.
