Arctic Splash-What's Your Number?
The Vernon Parks and Recreation Department is challenging everyone to see how many Vernon children you can send to summer camp. Every summer the Vernon Parks and Recreation Department gives out an average of $25,000 in fee reductions and full week scholarships to children and families of the Vernon community to send their children to summer camp who might not otherwise get a chance. A $75 donation will send one child to summer camp for a full week where they will meet new friends, meet new role models, play games, swim, do arts and crafts, and much more. So we ask you, how many children will you send to summer camp? WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER?
