“I feel like my kids miss out on so many typical childhood experiences due to their disabilities. Having the opportunity to swim year-round, in a facility geared directly to their needs, would be such a gift!” ~Kelly S. (mother of six Camp Evergreen participants)
There are limited physical activities our clients can enjoy, especially in the colder months. Enclosing our outdoor pool would offer year-round access. Additionally, it will protect the clients from the harsh summer sun and heat that can lead to serious health problems for those that are sensitive to this exposure.
Upon request, additional information can be provided to you outlining the construction and operational costs, as well as photographs and various references from our existing client base and other entities within our community that have an interest in utilizing this asset when completed.
An enclosed pool available year-round is not just a luxury, but a necessity for individuals with disabilities. It will be a great asset, not only for Camp Evergreen, but also to the greater Sheboygan area. To date $200,000 has been collected toward this project but much more is needed to achieve our goal of $1.5 million. Again, we the Board, are hopeful that you will also see the significant value of this ambitious project and support it with your contribution.
