The Ronald McDonald Camp is a place where kids with cancer – and their siblings – can enjoy just being kids. It also happens to be located at Camp Timber Tops; Ronald McDonald kids arrive the day after you leave. We’ve been hosting Ronald McDonald for over 10 years. You might never have known!
The Ronald McDonald camp is a week of fun and friendship, and freedom from being different. It’s a chance to experience new activities and acquire new skills in a supportive, nurturing environment. It’s a time when kids can talk openly about cancer and everybody else understands. Many of our incredible Timber Tops counselors and leaders stay on to participate. It’s an awesome week for everyone involved.
Amy Kieserman, a wonderful Philadelphia-area pre-school teacher and current Pine Forest division leader, has had her class collect money all year for their tzedukah project. Amy’s class decided that camp was such a wonderful opportunity for them, that they wanted to give money to send others to camp. Yesterday, Amy’s class presented a check to the Ronald McDonald house to help send a camper to the Ronald McDonald camp at Camp Timber Tops. In Amy’s class is Sophia, daughter of Cameron Taylor, our winter office camp manager. Our whole camp family is proud of Amy, Cameron, Sophia, and the entire KI preschool class for helping making this wonderful camp a reality.
