A portion of the proceeds from the book “Girls’ Camp: Ideas for Today’s Leaders” will support immigrant families at Waltham Family School in Massachusetts. This remarkable program “empowers English Language Learner families to be literate, self-sufficient and connected to the greater community. This innovative program is for parents of preschool aged and special needs children, parents with low literacy, low income, minorities and immigrants”(see website). “Together We Learn. Together We Read. Together We Succeed” is their motto.

Immigrant children whose families are part of Waltham Family School are eligible for full scholarships at Running Brook Day Camp. Camp activities such as drama and carpentry, with English-speaking new friends, helps their growth tremendously. But they need money for buses, since their parents seldom are able to provide transportation even if program expenses are covered.

Help send immigrant children to camp by purchasing copies of “Girls’ Camp: Ideas for Today’s Leaders” for friends you know who are girls’ camp leaders, priesthood visitors, or even any woman, young or old, to relieve memories of camp! It’s for a good cause.
