What we have in place
  • We currently have 75 words, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have word documents, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $7,098 , allowing us to put this money toward camp enrollment for underprivileged campers.

Several of our members speak Spanish - translating these words will help us reach this audience.
