Kids attend camp for free thanks to Community Day Care and Kiwanis


ANN ARBOR – If you’ve ever seen the sea of yellow t-shirts at Buhr Park Pool, then you’ve seen Community Day Care’s Summer Camp in action. Community Day Care, affectionately known in the community as CDC, announced today that it received a grant from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation to send kids to summer camp.

“We were grateful and thrilled to learn we received the grant from Kiwanis! It meant CDC could offer even more weeks to families who were there for free on scholarship.”, said Laura Stidham, Executive Director for Community Day Care.

This summer, with the help of Kiwanis and others who donated, all families who qualified for assistance received it, and no family was turned away because of their inability to pay.

“Camp is an important experience for so many kids – it was for me, and we believe that no child should miss out on the camp experience because they can’t afford it.”, said Mary Anna Dickinson, Development Director for Community Day Care.

In addition to summer camp, CDC also offers before and after school programs (Kids Club) at Burns Park and Lawton and has two preschool locations. Scholarships are available at all CDC’s programs; made possible because of the many generous and caring people in the community who donate, including the Kiwanis Club.
