Every year the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group sends dozens of Marine children to
summer camp. We are providing $350 scholarships per child so that he or she can attend the day camp or virtual learning experience of their choice.
Initially, our goal was to raise $17,500 to send 50 kids to camp. The Stanley W Ekstrom Foundation wants to DOUBLE that so they have offered to DOUBLE OUR DOLLARS allowing 100 kids to go to camp.
Military life can be a source of psychological stress for children. The last year has been extremely difficult for children due to Covid 19. As if military life is not hard enough on our Marine children; multiple deployments, frequent moves, new schools, having a parent injured or die is a reality for many children in military families. These youngsters have endured a lot sheltering in place and no friends to play with. In order to help contend with these stressors and make sure any invisible wounds are healed, our Marine kids are a top priority! Our Marine kiddos really want to go to camp, even more so coming off strict quarantine.
Can you help give one of them a memorable summer?
Please remember that the Stanley W Ekstrom Foundation has offered to match us dollar-for dollar for every dollar we raise towards our goal. So, any amount you give will be doubled.
Won’t you help us? Any amount will be graciously accepted towards a Camp Scholarship for one of
the little people of the Fighting Fifth!
