Our 2016 Camp Champions Celebration was a great success! 

Our honorees for the evening were the campers themselves! Dacia Thompson, Parent of Campers Ta’mar, Theresa and Anthoney Thompson from Passport Day Camp at Cambridge Montessori School in Cambridge, MA, Matthew Bowman from Camp Nashoba North in Raymond, ME, Zephaniah T. Knighton from Camp Becket Travel and Service Program in Becket, MA, Zyiasia M. Knighton from Camp Chimney Corners in Becket, MA, and Brandon Brichetto from Camp Susan Curtis in Stoneham, ME. It was truly wonderful to hear the Campers and their families speak about how camp impacted each of their lives and how thankful they were for the Campership program. 

A Special treat for the guest at our 2016 Celebration included the Virtual Reality Fenway Park Experience! Guests popped on a special headset and view a virtual reality video with shots of Red Sox batting practice and pitching sessions from up close! The viewer stood in the batter's box or behind infielders as they took ground balls. It was an unbelievable experience to see the team up close and in 360 degrees!

Guests also enjoyed the talent of Tim Decker a nationally touring performance speed painter who paints celebrity and patriotic portraits live in front of an audience. Celebration guests watched as he created three amazing 4’x 4’ paintings right before their eyes!  www.timdecker.com
