Camp with Mike Callahan
Jun 22, 2020 Season 5 Episode 67
Jay Casale

Mike Callahan loves camp. It has been a positive force in his life ever since he found himself coming out of his shell as an adolescent while he was away at camp, and has been a recurring theme of his life. Mike wondered why everyone shouldn't be able to enjoy camp the same way that he did, and then he did something about it. First, with Camp Better Days, where he worked for 10 years alongside his sister, who founded the camp for family members of 9/11 victims. And, now, as the Camp Director for Camp Uncommon, a camp focused on providing children from under-resourced areas with an enriching camp experience.

This summer, the camp is all virtual. They have 725 kids signed up and are committed to the camp being 100% free. So, they are looking for donations in order to provide each child with a "Treasure Trunk" of supplies for camp. Please consider helping out!
