Camp Edmo - Give It Up for Kids
What is the “Give it Up for Kids Challenge”
We’re calling on folks to have a little fun and give up a vice or unhealthy habit for 21 Days from November 1-21, 2018. Challengers give up spending money on things like pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin-spiced lattes or those new pumpkin-colored pumps during that time. Instead, Challengers donate that money towards our campaign to open another local equity camp for low-income kids in Summer 2019.

(Oh, and the challenge ends the day before Thanksgiving...because we’re compassionate, not crazy.)

To learn more about the challenge visit www.campedmo.org/GiveItUpForKids.
