Can’t attend but want to help?
donations towards our camper & Volunteer scholarship welcome!
No amount is too small. From helping cover the cost of online registration fees, t-shirts for volunteers, snacks, training materials, and the food & lodging at camp, all these things factor in when supporting a volunteer or little camper’s life-changing experience of camp! We appreciate your generosity!!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT OPERATION SHINE CAMP:
“I believe that the Operation Shine Camp run by the Kids & Dreams Foundation is important because it gets kids out doing things like zip-lining, boating, swimming, and arts & crafts that they otherwise would not. As a result, these kids show their parents, teachers and themselves that they are capable of doing great things and exceeding any perceived limitations and expectations.”
