Our Therapeutic Program participants recently enjoyed a day of traditional, FUN summer camp activities at “Camp Schurig!”
Participants started the day by following the trail of “bear paw prints” leading them to our “Base Camp” where the magic began!
Everyone (including staff) had to choose a unique “camp name” for the day. Campers enjoyed lunch on the patio followed by an action-packed day filled with awesome back-country games and activities, such as making tie-dye t-shirts, “fishing for prizes,” a wet and wild water balloon toss, and a “campfire” sing-a-long and stories by flashlight! And, of course, campers feasted on everyone’s favorite campsite treat…s’mores!
Planned at the suggestion of our Therapeutic Program participants, our Summer Camp Day was a wonderful way for us to socialize as a group and enjoy the fresh air and great outdoors here in beautiful Larkspur!
Through the experience of “Camp Schurig,” participants were able to reap the benefits of camping by refreshing and renewing their bodies, minds and spirits outdoors. The day also provided the opportunity for participants to practice interpersonal communication, active listening and social skills while promoting creativity and self-expression.
A great day was had by all!
Big, big thanks to all of our awesome volunteers
who helped made this special day happen!
With your help, we raised over $150,000 to support the Karen G. Schurig Scholarship Fund!
Karen was the founder and former executive director of Schurig Center. It was her belief that no one should be denied access to our programs and services due to a lack of financial resources. Today, over 70% of the individuals who receive our support are reliant on this fund.
I also wanted to share with you that the Gala Committee worked very hard to provide a memorable evening while keeping event costs at a minimum – ensuring that 80 cents of every dollar raised went to the scholarship fund.
We hope you enjoyed the powerful testimonials, beautiful location, decorations, Master of Ceremonies Maria Ross, and the fabulous music provided by the Amanda Addleman Band and Zan Stewart and Eric Holder. We invite you enjoy some photos from the night of the event here.
I’d like to personally invite you to join us once again for our 2018 event, which is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, March 3, 2018. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available now. It’s going to be another memorable evening you won’t want to miss!
On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff and the many people we serve each year, thank you for making our 2017 gala a big success!
