The sweet taste of S’mores & SUCCESS!

Thank you to all who supported our first-ever CAMPOUT FOR THE CAUSE.  You helped us to raise over $25,000 toward ending child abuse in the Upper Valley.  Proceeds from the event  will subsidize our child abuse prevention, intervention and treatment initiatives, and will support our new supervised visitation center.

Presented by our Upper Valley board, CampOut for the Cause hosted over 100 children and families for a day in the woods and a night under the stars.  Revelers  enjoyed an array of activities including live music and dancing, kayaking, field games, races and friendly competitions, beach volleyball, storytelling, orienteering, a fishing derby, and demonstrations of wild raptors and fire engines, as well as a grand barbecue.

Special thanks to our major sponsors and partners; Mascoma Savings Bank; Volkl; Marker; Artistree; Hypertherm HOPE Foundation; Storrs Pond Recreation Area; and Hershenson, Carter, Scott & McGee, P.C.; Hanover Fire & Rescue; LL Bean; VINS; and Music by Jenni.
