The Genesis Foundation's Camp Scholarship Fund for Children with Disabilities supports children to attend specialized programs that allow them to become more independent during their growth and development.
Through generous donations throughout the year, the Genesis Foundation is able to sponsor scholarships for these children to attend enrichment programs.
Scholarship recipients will be able to attend various camps that create a positive camp experience for children with disabilities while also educating them on how to live with their specific disability.
Parents and children are appreciative of the program, allowing the kids to have a memorable summer camp experience.

Genesis Foundation is dedicated to the care of those in need. The Foundation provides charitable funds for programs to increase health and wellness to residents of the greater Quad Cities.
