$39,156 was raised to provide children of fallen, wounded and ill military heroes with a summer camp experience.

House of Raeford Farms FLOCK is proud to announce a new high for the FLOCK and Camp Corral fundraising challenge. The April through May campaign raised a total of $39,156 to provide children of fallen, wounded and ill military heroes with a life-transforming summer camp experience. FLOCK met the challenge and doubled the first $30,000 contributed, bringing the grand total to $69,156. This effort will send more than 55 kids to camp this summer.

Camp Corral’s Impact

This year alone, Camp Corral will serve nearly 3,000 military-connected children from across the country. These unique camp programs are tailored to address the most common needs and concerns of these kids, including discovering peer relationships, creating support systems and learning coping skills. Along with fun traditional camp experiences, Camp Corral offers family camp retreats and a unique leadership program for youth ages 16-17.

FLOCK’s Ongoing Support

FLOCK first collaborated with Camp Corral in 2020, establishing this extraordinary nonprofit as a two-time benefactor of the FLOCK-sponsored Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball Games, contributing $50,000. In addition, the 2022 and 2023 fundraising challenges totaled $90,982 in contributions and matching dollars for the kids. Over the past four years, FLOCK has directed $170,982 in donations to the organization.

“FLOCK’s partnership with Camp Corral is fulfilling our mission of helping those who are called to do good, do more,” said Dave Witter, a member of FLOCK’s board of directors. “Through the FLOCK/Camp Corral Challenge, contributors make it possible for these incredible kids to test their limits, challenge their fears, celebrate their accomplishments, and make life-affirming friendships that assure them they are not alone.”

“Camp Corral is in awe of the unwavering support from House of Raeford Farms FLOCK and everyone committed to their mission,” shared Sheri Oberhelman, vice president of development & outreach at Camp Corral. “Your dedication to our nation’s youngest heroes will give them so much more than just a week at summer camp. They will have a chance to build friendships, strengthen their self-confidence, and recognize their resilience. From the entire Camp Corral team and the children we honorably serve, thank you for changing so many lives.”

Looking Ahead

Camp Corral Summer Camp 2024 will comprise 20 sites across the country, where these special children meet other young people who understand, enjoy thrilling experiences and love the chance just to be kids. Thanks to all those who helped FLOCK and our friends at Camp Corral make a difference in these youths’ lives.
