Summer Camp Fund

Fun days at camp helped lift a family through hard times

Jonah Kirks, 8, swims, plays basketball and dives into nature at the Cannon Memorial YMCA’s Kannapolis branch. This year, The Charlotte Observer’s Summer Camp Fund is paying for three children to spend their summer days at the YMCA camp in Kannapolis. They’re among 550 kids heading to 19 camps thanks to donations from readers and the community.
