Imagine if you would the spectacular radiance of dawn appearing above the tree line, the fresh morning sun radiating across the lake and the mournful cry of the loon echoing in the distance. These are but a few of nature's treasures out of the reach of many special children today. Our Wild Dawn program has been set up to help send specially challenged children to a variety of camps specifically designed to handle their special needs. These camps offer not only a chance for learning and experiencing the great outdoors, but help create a feeling of normalcy and camaraderie in an otherwise isolated time. Instructors at these camps are experienced in medical procedures necessary to work with these children. They are also experienced in archery, camping, outdoor cooking, hiking, nature and many other facets of outdoor activities. In working with these and several other children’s camps Benefit4Kids will continue to assist many less fortunate children enjoy our great outdoors and help them to learn the morals and family values that are so often lacking today.
Some of the camps we currently support:
If you know of a camp that may need our assistance please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and give us as much information about the camp as you can. We can't promise to help every camp but we'll do what we can.
Sammi Morrow Memorial Grant
Recently Benefit4Kids lost our dear friend and supporter Sammi Morrow to cancer. Sammi was a big part of Benefit4Kids and had been with us since Benefit4Kids was founded helping out in many ways. She will be dearly missed but never forgotten by those of us who knew Sammi.The Board of Directors of Benefit4Kids would like to announce at this time the addition of the Sammi Morrow Memorial Grant designated specifically for camps working with children suffering from the disease that took Sammi from us. Our board has decided that each year $1000 will be set aside to assist these camps where needed. These funds will be over and above any funds already set aside for children's camps we currently work with.
If you are aware of a children's camp that works specifically with children suffering from any type of cancer please have them contact Benefit4Kids for more information on this program.

It is our hope that one day the word cancer can be stricken from our lives and those of our children. Until that day Benefit4Kids is committed to helping to put a little sunshine in the lives of those children who each day battle this dreaded disease. We know Sammi wouldn't have it any other way.
