As a retired Military Veteran, I have always wanted to give back to the military and provide for those individuals who currently serve our great nation. I have been so impressed with YMCA Camp High Harbour - Lake Allatoona and the life changing experiences it offers that I have decided to devote my spare time to help provide this opportunity to our Local Active Duty Service Member families.
My daughters have been attending summer camp at YMCA Camp High Harbour for several years. The bonds they have made during these summer sessions remind me of those that I had made during my 20 Years of military service. I am honored to serve on the Lake Allatoona Board of Directors, where it is my goal to help bring the thrill and excitement of summer camp to active duty service members family at NO COST to the service member. When a service member is deployed, the stress on family life can be unimaginable. Knowing that their child is experiencing the thrill and excitement at Camp High Harbour at NO COST will do wonders for morale. While this short term relief can't eliminate all the family stress associated with a deployment, it will surely help.
Deployments can be a very difficult time for children. By bringing them into the High Harbour family, even if its just for a week, we can make a difference. Your donation can and will have a positive impact on that military family and child. Please show your support for the troops and their families by making a donation today. 100% of your donation will go to the cost of sending a child to Camp. Together we can help enrich the lives of those in the military who freely give so much while getting so little in return.
