Washington Post sends kids to camp

Jump to Comments

The Washington Post raises nearly half a million dollar every year for their Send a Kid to Camp campaign.

This a tremendous amount of money for a company to raise, for any purpose. Raising that much money for a private equity venture would be a feat in and of itself. Raising that much money annually for a nonprofit organization is a significant effort. The Post has been sending local Washington kids to Camp Moss Hollow now for nearly thirty years and they should be very much commended for this perennial act of extreme kindness. Also to be congratulated are the readers of the Post who regularly contribute to this campaign.

The money pays for kids in the city who could not otherwise afford a summer camp a chance to get out of the city for a week in a wooded setting in the foothills of Virginia’s Shenandoah Mountains. Camp Moss Hollow describes itself as having provided camping experiences to at risk youth for over 100 years.
