It was a lively and eventful evening in Putnam Valley as parents, family, friends, teachers, and Foundling staff gathered for a night of food, fun, laughter, and entertainment at Camp Felix’s Open House. Everyone lined up to enjoy dinner in preparation for the excitement of the camp’s talent show ahead of them.
The show included dynamic and energetic performances that varied from dancing, to singing, to one-act plays! Each of the campers exuded confidence as they performed their area of artistry. The atmosphere was electric as campers and audience members cheered on their friends and bunkmates.
“It’s so uplifting to see how much progress many of the campers make while at Camp Felix. These are children who have faced adversity at a young age and it takes a lot of courage and resiliency to push through the hardships and just be a kid. To see everyone smiling, laughing and being creative is such a gift,” said Gabriella Cassandra, Interim Program Director of Camp Felix.
Time is running out to give the gift of Camp. Please sponsor a camper today and provide youths in NYC’s foster care system the chance to have the summer of their lives.
