Camp Ta-Kum-Ta-Thon Week

It's KOOL To Send A Kid To Camp TaKumTa!

Camp Ta-Kum-Ta-Thon Week

2021 CAMP TAKUMTA-THON GRAND TOTAL: OVER $200,000 RAISED FOR THE KIDS OF CAMP TAKUMTA!

For the 23rd year, you made it KOOL to send a kid to Camp TaKumTa, helping raise over $200,000 for the kids of Camp TaKumTa in South Hero, Vermont and New York’s camp for kids who have or have had cancer, or enough to send ALL the kids to Camp in 2022!

Camp TaKumTa Executive Director Dennis DePaul says “I’m overwhelmed! This community has supported us this year in an incredible way. I’m just so grateful to this community and deeply humbled by the generosity.”

So are we! On behalf of all of here at KOOL 105, and the staff, volunteers, and especially the kids of Camp TaKumTa, thanks again! If you missed out, you can still donate through the holidays by clicking here! …and Merry Christmas from all of us at Big Hits KOOL 105!

 


For over 35-years, Camp Ta-Kum-Ta has been a camp for children from Vermont and New York who have, or have had cancer. There is never a charge to the family of the child, instead all camp expenses (about $2,500 per child) are covered by donations from the public. Some of these expenses include essentials to any camp like food and shelter and activities, but because Camp Ta-Kum-Ta is special, also include chemotherapy, a fully-equipped on-site medical facility, and handicap accessibility to everything possible.

Join us all this week as we talk with the Campers, the Staff, and the Volunteers who make Camp TaKumTa such a special place!
