Campground Owners of New York (CONY) is kicking off a its first-ever statewide fundraising effort in 2012, to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times, a New York State-based organization providing camping experiences to children with cancer.
All throughout the summer camping season, CONY campgrounds and RV parks will display change-collection jars, sell t-shirts and paper balloons, and host special fundraising events. Proceeds will be pooled and donated to Camp Good Days and Special Times at a special ceremony during CONY's annual Exposition and Trade Show in Lake George, NY, in November.
Camp Good Days and Special Times is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life challenges through summer camping experiences and year-round events and activities.
This past summer, more than 1,500 children, including children with cancer from several foreign countries, participated in Camp Good Days, located on the shores of Keuka Lake. All the programs and services at Camp Good Days and Special Times are offered free of charge for the participants.
