We are still counting down to #GivingTuesday! Meet Zion - a CCK camper! We recently talked to him about what CCK means to him!

"Hi, my name is Zion and I have learned a lot about character at The Center for Courageous Kids. Things like following my leaders, because they know where our next fun adventure will be. I’m a better friend because of CCK. Acceptance and diversity are huge parts of being at CCK. I might just have one finger and have no feet (I had both feet amputated at the age of 6 years old) but I can tell you I am one cool camper. We are all “different” and having a place that celebrate who we are is so important. I love coming back to camp every year to see my amazing CCK friends and the staff. CCK has taught me how to be nicer to other people. Like when I go fishing. I’m supposed to yell “Casting!” before I cast so everyone will be careful and I won’t get my hook stuck in someone’s shirt. So why is building character such a big part of CCK? Because every child deserves to experience a summer camp! The staff, volunteers, and my fellow campers have safe, fun, and crazy adventures at camp — it’s the greatest! I am more confident and able to encourage others to grow each summer as well. I am a leader and I will let others know why CCK needs people like you to help make this camp possible throughout the year."

If Cubby could use all the emojis he wanted to express how much fun he had this past weekend, the text message would be way too long! The Diabetes Fall Family Retreat was a great, and successful, end to the Fall season! Thank you to all of the families that came out, played hard, made crafts, and networked with others from across the country! CCK is forever grateful, for if it wasn't for you, we could not make weekends like these happen! #Diabetes #Thanksgiving #Gratitude #CCK.KY #CourageousKids #Fall ... See MoreSee Less
