Besides being taught the meaning of fair play and good citizenship, the campers were taught Dramatics, Music, Dancing, Arts, Crafts and Social Graces.
In the late 1980s, with the proliferation of camps for underprivileged children creating smaller enrollment for our camp each year, it became obvious that our finances and energies could be used in a more fruitful and productive manner. Consequently, in 1990, the Brothers of the District sold the campgrounds in Tallman and created, The Seventh District Association Inc., with the foundation at its center. The Foundation now support many different philanthropic organizations that care for indigent as well as physically and mentally disadvantaged youngsters. A few examples are Children's Aid, T.D.F. Theatre Development Fund and Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center. See our commitment page for a more complete list of charities we support. Our support amounts to well over $350,000 annually.
As we go forward, we hope you will help us continue our solemn commitment to helping others. With your corporate or personal financial help we can continue to grow and expand the amount of benevolence we can give to these most deserving children.
