2018 YEAR IN REVIEW

Despite threats from the Cranston Fire in the Summer of 2018 that forced the cancellation of two Camp sessions, the year was largely defined by strides in meeting the needs of those we serve. With funding from The Gumpert Foundation, a team of Camp staff participated in a Project Impact self-study of our weekend Family Camp sessions for families of children aged 0-8 who have cancer. Under the direction of Project Impact’s researchers, we interviewed 12 families and surveyed 27 families who have attended Family Camp. The study found that many families struggle to maintain a network of support once they leave Camp, leading to our decision to host the first ever RMHCSC Family Camp for families who have stayed at a Ronald McDonald House for a diagnosis other than cancer. Thanks to generous donors, 2018 also saw the building of Camp’s new horse pavilion! Our top-rated equestrian program now has optimal shading for the summer months and a tack shed to house equipment for the horses so loved by our campers.

THE BUMSTEAD FAMILY

 “If we had a million dollars we’d give it to Camp,” says Melissa. “So to be an Ambassador Family is how we can give back now… spreading the word to other families so that Camp can keep changing lives.”
