2020 Camps Cancelled
Date Posted: 5/6/2020
Dear Emily K Center Camp Families,
We hope this message finds you all in good health during these unprecedented times. We would like to provide an update on our plans for 2020 Emily K Center summer camps.
After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel both our basketball and drama camps, as the health and well-being of our campers and staff is of the utmost importance to us. We look forward to hosting our campers each summer and will certainly miss the chance to connect with them. In announcing this decision today, it is our hope that families will have more time to make alternate plans.
If your camper is currently registered for either or both camps, please see the important refund information below. To our previous participants who have not yet paid the registration fee, but would still like to support our organization’s mission, please consider making a direct donation of a similar amount by visiting our donation page.
Registered campers have three options for application of the registration fees:
We will automatically begin to issue refunds unless we hear from you by Friday, May 15. No further action is required to receive a refund. Please allow up to seven days for the funds to reach your account. If you would prefer to convert your registration fee into a donation or credit, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, including the full name(s) of the campers, the selected camps -- basketball, drama, or both -- and the selected fee option.
The Emily K Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is wholly donor funded. We provide life-changing college access programs to Durham students. Should you choose to convert your registration fee into a donation, it would be 100% tax-deductible and would help us continue to provide services to our students during these challenging times.
We are incredibly grateful to our campers, coach Craig Wilson, the staff of CJ Wilson Hoops Academy, Melissa Zeph, The Justice Theater Project, our partners at Immaculata Catholic School, and the interns and volunteers who made these camps a success for so many years.
We are so appreciative of your support of the Emily K Center. Please stay safe and well. Thank you, and we cannot wait to return in 2021!
Sincerely, Emily K Center Camp Staff
