The camping season is once again upon us with many campgrounds already open or preparing to open. This brings the opportunity to continue to raise money for Camp Good Days and Special Times. For over five years CONY has been working with its campground members to help raise money for the organization that provides camping experiences to children with cancer.
Thanks to member campgrounds and their campers and supporters, CONY raised over $100,000 in 2016, the largest annual amount to date. Camp Good Days and Special Times is a New York State organization located along Keuka Lake that provides kids with this terrible disease the opportunity to experience camping without the cost.
CONY members are continuing their fundraising efforts throughout the 2017 camping season. Money for Camp Good Days is raised through campground events such as auctions, raffles, dinners, concerts, and other events at participating campgrounds. If you are planning on camping this summer, look out for some of these events at the New York State campground where you choose to stay.
