PRESS RELEASE 3-14-2016
Ozark, Illinois—Camp Ondessonk announces $50,000 in Summer Camp Scholarships available now through the generous gifts of supporters. These scholarships are for children who want to attend 2016 Summer Camp and are designed to make Camp Ondessonk more accessible to children coming from all economic backgrounds. Three types of scholarship opportunities are available: General and St. Kateri scholarship recipients receive partial tuition coverage, and Monsignor Fournie Scholarship recipients receive full tuition coverage.
“We are delighted to announce these scholarship opportunities which reflect the importance of children’s outdoor education programs.” says Dan King, Executive Director. “Our Summer Camp program is committed to a ‘whole-child’ approach, which provides our campers with personal development and leadership skills, while promoting a stewardship for and appreciation of God’s gifts.”
“Kids need places such as Camp Ondessonk for reasons that go far beyond fun,” notes Dan King. “The life-experience they gain at camp is a catalyst for strengthened self-esteem and developing a greater sense of awareness of the things that really matter when it comes to growing into conscientious and productive adults.”
