Moments for Morrys
Dear Camp Walden Campers, Parents, Alumni and Staff,
As many of you know, Project Morry is an organization near and dear to our hearts - it is a program that empowers young people from under-resourced communities to envision and establish a positive future. Project Morry delivers an impactful youth development program offering children and teens a combination of exceptional summer camp experiences, year-round academic enrichment and support, and one-on-one mentoring.
Camp Walden has been a proud supporter of Morry’s Camp for over a decade. Camp Walden campers and staff raise money for Project Morry by swimming laps in our annual swim-a-thon. Because of the generosity of our Walden families, we raise over $15,000 each summer.
In addition, Walden’s Teens (15 year old campers) are part of a partnership where teens from Project Morry will spend a few days with us at Walden and where we have the opportunity to visit their camp and spend time learning and making connections with their campers and staff. Having this experience was one of the highlights of our summer.
Getting to know the Project Morry campers and staff showed us how important this organization is for children who otherwise would not have been able to have such significant growing and learning opportunities. Morry’s Camp, and the people in it, have become very special to us. That is why we (last summer’s Teens) decided to initiate a fundraiser for Project Morry, called #MomentsforMorrys, to raise the money that we were unable to raise at our swim-a-thon.
Over Labor Day weekend, between September 5th and 7th, we are inviting campers, staff, alumni and their families to participate in our fundraiser. We are asking everyone to share their #MomentsforMorrys. Moments can be sporty, artsy, adventurous, camp inspired or even a simple act of kindness - the activity can be a minute or all day - it is up to you! At the end of the activity, we would love for you to take a photo, tag #MomentsforMorrys and post them on social media or email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to see all the amazing ways our community comes together to celebrate this organization.
The #MomentsforMorrys weekend is about bringing our entire Walden community together to support and raise money for Morry’s Camp! Please consider donating below.
We are excited for this event and so appreciate your support,
The Walden 2020 CITs

Kids that Give
We love that many of the young campers who participate in Camps that Give over the summer are inspired to continue fundraising back in their communities. Through individual acts of kindness and group efforts, our youngest contributors come up with creative ways to support Project Morry, including lemonade stands, swim team events, clubs at school, and asking friends and family to donate in celebration of their bar and bat mitzvahs. It is a great way to get your community involved, have fun and make a difference
