AFFIRM 2017​

logo (1)AFFIRM 2017 is just around the corner! For those who don’t know, AFFIRM is a one week long summer camp for grades 6-12, and it is the highlight of the year for most of our kids. It’s also a highlight of my year. I love AFFIRM, and am going as Unit Director of the Exodus unit.

 

Fundraising is critical for the Youth, as AFFIRM costs $425 per person. Last year the Youth were able to raise enough money to cover the cost of everyone attending. That is the goal for this year as well, so expect to hear about a lot of AFFIRM fundraisers in the weeks and months ahead.

 

Go to the AFFIRM website, where youth and parents can read more about it, and Youth and their parents can download the AFFIRM information and application.

 

AFFIRM is an amazing experience, and our Youth always come back on fire. I can’t wait to see what will happen this year, and look forward to the chance to support them in raising the necessary funds.
