A Splashing Good Time!

Here in California, water is a way of life – from the beach to outdoor exercise all year long, we are no strangers to how heavily we depend on water! This is just one reason why The Painted Turtle is so happy to announce that Niagara Cares has granted $300,000 to enhance aquatic and hospital outreach programs at seven SeriousFun Children’s Network camps across the country! This generous funding will support and strengthen The Painted Turtle’s swimming, boating, and fishing programs – all a part of our intentional and adaptive programming. We are especially honored that is Niagara Care’s first grant ever awarded! Yes! Yes! Yes!

In fact, Niagara Cares loves The Painted Turtle so much that they also sent 10 volunteers out to camp last month to participate in our annual Corporate Volunteer Day! From weeding lawns to sewing turtle pillows these volunteers did it all with a smile. It is clear that Niagara and their employees are dedicated to supporting and enriching the lives of children and families facing overwhelming challenges in their community.

Thanks to Niagara’s support we will be able to improve our site, hire and train staff, and purchase necessary supplies to keep camp up, splashing, and wonderful. So let’s give a Standing O and a big THANK YOU to Niagara for supporting The Painted Turtle and our partner camps at SeriousFun! We are so grateful for this partnership and can’t wait to see what our campers think of our new boats.
