Marana, AZ (UPrinting.com –11 April 2012) Camp To Belong, a member of UPrinting.com’s UCommunity NPO Sponsorship Program, will kick off the summer with a host of fun events and activities.

Camp To Belong is an international non-profit 501 (c) that reunites siblings placed in separate foster homes.

Founded by Lynn Price, herself separated from a sibling in the foster care system; the Camp to Belong (CTB) is approaching its 18th year and has helped reunite over 5,000 siblings.

Camp To Belong participants are supervised by volunteer counselors and are given the opportunity to bond with their brothers and sisters, as well as share experiences with other campers with activities such as horseback riding, rafting, swimming and wall climbing.

According to Sherry Brock, Executive Director for Camp To Belong “[These activities] strengthen relationships while experiencing the storybook adventures that a summer camp provides.”

Sherry continues “We are about to launch our summer camp season! We will be holding camps that reunite siblings all across the country. For a current list of dates and locations, please visit our website at www.camptobelong.org

She relates a story on CTB’s impact on the campers“One of our favorite stories comes from Anthony, one of our young campers . It tells what an impact Camp To Belong had on him as well as the importance to him of being able to be with his siblings. He said “If I could have only one wish for a gift, on my birthday or at Christmas, just one, that gift would be Camp To Belong”.”

Through the UCommunity, UPrinting.com supports Camp To Belong’s mission to bring separated families together and give siblings memories to cherish for the rest of their lives. The UCommunity has provided Camp To Belong  flyers, business cards, booklets, newsletters, among other print products.

Sherry states “The products produced for us by UPrinting are top notch. They allow us to look professional while being able to work within our budget, thus saving precious dollars for our program.”

“The generous donation from the UCommunity Program allowed us to save on a recent project, our CTB S’Mores and More cookbook. This project is a fundraiser for us, so the savings translate into real dollars that benefit Camp To Belong.”

Asked how else we can help CTB, Sherry says “Donate your time as a camp counselor, donate your dollars to help us send siblings to a Camp To Belong. Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) or a foster parent.”
