This year we are thrilled to partner with
(pronounced Ah ran’ zah zoo)
“Camp Aranzazu’s mission is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults with chronic illnesses and special needs by providing unique camping, environmental education, and retreat experiences. We accomplish this mission based on an ecumenical understanding that, as people of God, we are called to demonstrate love and compassion for others, and a responsibility for our environment.
Camp Aranzazu is the only camp on the Texas Gulf Coast that serves as a host facility for children and adults with special needs and chronic illnesses. Our completely barrier-free facility features paved walkways to assist wheelchair travel, specialized equipment to enable maximum participation in water sports and other physical activities, as well as a health center for campers requiring daily treatments and medications.”
This year our programming theme is Your Adventure Starts Here. From Camp GunnaLead to Find Your Tribe we will unpack what it means to discover, ignite and share each campers inner SPARK. We strive to inspire teams to be trail blazing servants in their schools and communities. We hope you will join us in this Aranzazu Adventure by participating in one or more of our below initiatives.
Stock up on the latest CP + Aranzazu stickers at our CP Style Spot. All funds will help Camp Aranzazu recover from Hurricane Harvey and prepare facilities for a safe and fun camp experience.
Every camper that attends Camp Aranzazu is greeted with a new or gently used stuffed animal. All hotel events will have special instructions on how to participate!
In addition to a cuddly animal, campers are given a special Welcome Camper letter. All CP campers will be invited to write an encouraging note to fellow campers looking to discover their inner SPARK.
Many dance and drill teams that were in the path of Hurricane Harvey will not be experiencing the same excitement of a new school year. These teams will have their focus on recovery and rebuilding from the vast devastation across South East Texas.Taking an active role in Harvey Relief efforts is extraordinarily personal for Crowd Pleasers. Our main office is located in Houston and most of our executive team lives in Houston and surrounding areas. We personally witnessed the panic and destruction Harvey brought to hundreds upon hundreds of thousands! We joined them in worry, as we fearfully watched water rise near our homes. Our nights were filled with extreme uncertainty and the roars of rescue helicopters above our neighborhoods. Our families and people we love, are still in dangerous circumstances and facing a long road to ahead to any sense of normalcy.
Our city and much of South East Texas is in extreme need and we hope that you will join us in being ALL HANDS ON DECK!! Servant Leadership is the foundation of our company and the cornerstone of our summer leadership curriculum. What better way to demonstrate that quality with your team, than to join us in our effort to support those heavily impacted by Harvey!
