A Note from the Directors

Dear Friends & Supporters of Camp Krem,

Summer is just around the corner and we can already feel the excitement in the air! In a mere 38 days, Camp will be buzzing with happy campers and staff, ready to embark on what we hope is their best summer ever!

In order to get Camp in tip-top shape, we are having our annual Work Weekend and are calling all volunteers to help us get things ready!

We also hope to see you at our Open House on May 13th. This is a great opportunity for new and old Camp families to come along, meet the staff, ask questions and take a tour. See below for more information about both of these events. Please RSVP if you plan on attending either.

Happy Camping,
Christina Krem & Katie Giampa
Program Directors

Featured Volunteer
Sophia Dutra
 
Sophia started volunteering at Camp two and a half years ago and is loved by our campers! She works full-time as a technical recruiter and is a model, yet still finds time to volunteer on many of our weekend trips!A real altruist, not only does Sophia spend many weekends helping us, she also volunteers with A Walk on Water, an organization which takes children with special needs surfing and works with Shark Stewards to save sharks and protect our oceans. In addition, she tutors visiting scholars every week at UC Berkeley.

One of Sophia’s favorite things about Camp Krem is the opportunity to see the campers thrive in an environment that allows them to come as they are. She keeps coming back because the campers give her so much happiness and she learns so much from them.

Thank you, Sophia!
