The Fred Gabler Helping Hand Camp Fund was founded to provide financial assistance to camps and programs that allow for children from underserved communities to experience the camaraderie, independence and joy that Fred and many of the Fund’s supporters were fortunate enough to partake in as children and young adults.
Our mission is to provide an overnight summer camp experience to financially disadvantaged children, which allows them to express creative talents, participate in team sports, learn computer skills, form strong bonds with others, and ultimately increase their self-esteem. We selectively support camps that offer a year-round mentoring program with the ultimate goal of empowering children to make appropriate life choices.
