A Message From Colleen Reilly and Sasha and Maxwell Pohl-Weary
Please help us support Camp Winston. Sasha has attended Camp Winston's summer Girl's Camps, and Girl's Weekends since summer 2013. Sasha's little brother Maxwell is set to start Boy's Camps and Boy's Weekends in summer 2016.
This camp has been instrumental in supporting Sasha's development from a shy hesitant girl to an outgoing confident girl, ready to take on life and the challenges that come with it. The camp helped Sasha develop strong and long-lasting social connections with friends, courage to join extracurricular activities independently, skills to make new friends and join into social activities at school and elsewhere. The changes are too many to name, suffice to say that Camp Winston has given Sasha a quality of life and has set her up for success in ways we never dreamed about.
Camp Winston is a camp able to provide high levels of support, up to 1:1 if needed, and the fees reflect this level of support. However, Camp Winston does not have financial barriers - no participants are turned away if their family can't afford the fees. Camp subsidies are a key component of the Camp's programming.
This camp provides children and youth with a community of support year round to help them learn to be functional and contributing members of their communities, now and into the future.
Please help us raise funds to support Camp Winston's ability to continue providing these priceless programs to as many campers as possible.
Thank you very much for your help.
Colleen Reilly, Sasha and Maxwell Pohl-Weary
