May 13 golf tourney benefits Camp Creation
By Darleen Johnson
Join us for the First Annual Charity Golf Tournament sponsored by Bill and Kristi Jenkins, of NAPA Auto Parts on May 13 to benefit Camp Creation for at risk children. Our tournament offers a day of fun golfing at Craft Farms Golf Resort in Gulf Shores, the only course in Alabama designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, followed by a dinner and raffles. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit Camp Creation, a non-profit organization that offers at risk children a summer enrichment program.
Camp Creation is a 5-week summer program held in Foley, Al at Liberty Church. Camp begins on June 24 and ends on July 26. Children of South Baldwin County, Pre-K to 4th grade, benefit from Camp Creation, which started in 2016. We were so thrilled after assessing our students the first week of Camp and again in the last week that 93 percent of our children showed improvement in both math and reading. Four of our certified teachers from last summer have all agreed to come back again this summer. We have also added three additional certified teachers to our staff.
At Camp Creation, the care and concern of the individual child is addressed through special attention, healthy meals, constructive socialization and positive encouragement.
We’ll see you on the links as you help the kids of Camp Creation discover their natural gifts and experiences.
