Coalinga children will attend summer camp in Cambria this year thanks to people incarcerated at Pleasant Valley State Prison (PVSP). The population raised enough money to donate to the youth for summer camp.
Camp Yeager was unable to run for the last two years. This year, with the camp finally open for business, there was a large group of eager applicants. The Community Resource Team at PVSP was able to review applications and sponsor a great group of deserving children. All who applied were sent to camp.
In prior years, the grant applications have been for 20-30 children each year. The selected children will be able to attend camp free of charge and enjoy an experience they would not have been able to do otherwise.
