Camp Thunderbird Thanks Lions for Our Support

Gretchen Rohleder thanked the RH Lions for our support of the YMCA Camp Thunderbird scholarship program for children who needed assistance to attend camp at a Spring Breakfast Meeting.

The camp serves about 2,800 families throughout the summer and provides around 240 scholarships each year. The cost for one camper to attend camp is about $890 a week, and they can accommodate around 300 to 350 campers per week. Camp Thunderbird is a non-profit organization, and they rely on the generosity of the community to supplement their 400,000 operating budget.
