LOUISVILLE, KY – Woodforest Charitable Foundation makes a $4,000 contribution to Indian Summer Camp.

Unfortunately some kids are dealing with the curse of having childhood cancer.  In order to make that obstacle a little easier on both the children and their families, Indian Summer Camp offers campers the experience of a lifetime as well as the opportunity to grow, learn and build self reliance.

Indian Summer Camp currently operates an annual week-long summer camp for children aged 6-18, who are either currently undergoing treatment for cancer or have survived a childhood cancer.  Since 1981, volunteers from Indian Summer Camp have served well over 1,000 families affected by childhood cancer.  “The Woodforest Charitable Foundation and Woodforest National Bank are pleased to provide support to such an admirable cause,” stated Kim Marling, Executive Director/Vice President of Woodforest Charitable Foundation.  “It is extremely unfortunate when any child is diagnosed with cancer.  Indian Summer Camp provides these children with a loving environment and opportunities that every child deserves.”

For 29 years, Indian Summer Camp has been providing children with cancer the chance to take a break from their medical treatments, build friendships, and just be a kid again.  The Camp offers activities not easily provided at home or in medical institutions.  A full medical staff is on hand during the entire session in the event any of the children develop a need for medical attention.  Some campers even take their normal chemotherapy treatments in the camp's medical station.  No child is ever turned away if their family is unable to pay.
