K aryn Murray, a past Spirit Camper, CIT and Coach graciously initiated an Alumni Scholarship Fund to be awarded to an incoming camper. In lieu of distributing wedding favors to her guests, Karyn decided to give back to something that has touched her life in a special way; therefore, she passed along the cost of wedding favors to Spirit in the form of tuition for one lucky girl. Karyn’s goal is to offer a summer at Spirit to a girl who otherwise would not have the opportunity to experience the rewards of Spirit Sports Camp, and we hope to continue to award this scholarship on an annual basis through the Alumni Scholarship Fund instituted because of Karyn’s generosity.
Hats off to you, Karyn, that’s an incredible, generous and thoughtful gift! You have made all of us realize how special the gifts we share with each other at camp truly are.
P.S. The favors passed out at the reception were whistles with a note attached stating that in lieu of traditional favors, Karyn and her husband, PJ Lavoie, have donated to the Spirit Sports Camp Alumni Fund.
To date, the Alumni Scholarship Fund has financed five campers who otherwise would not have been able to attend and enjoy a summer camp experience. We all thank you for your contributions and generosity in making a difference in the live's of todays' girls.
