My name is Camden Schweitzer and I have been chosen to be a Student Ambassador with People to People. I am currently a 5th Grader at Wrentham’s Roderick School in Ms. Frizell’s class; I play basketball for the KP Metro Travel Basketball team, I play softball for WYBSA, and I have been dancing at Dance & Beyond in Wrentham since they opened 5 years ago.
In July 2014, I will be lucky enough to travel to Alaska for 11 days with the People to People delegation. I will be one of only ten 5th graders selected from Massachusetts to represent my family, my school, my town and the state.
I am looking forward to learning about the Alaskan culture, experiencing some pretty awesome things, and creating some lifelong memories and friendships. Our delegation will be conducting a few service projects with the Native Alaskans, studying glaciers in Denali National Park, heading on a whale watch with Marine Biologists and raising a sled dog puppy for a day at the Iditarod Training Center. This is more than being a tourist in a different city; this truly will be a learning experience!
I have started my journey to raise funds and you can help me reach my campaign goal on #Fundly! You can donate as much or little as you want to. Check it out: http://fundly.com/camden-s-northern-expedition. You can also scan in the QR Code here if you have a smart phone. That will take you right to the page for making a donation. In addition to donating online, I am also planning some other great fundraising things this Spring. I am looking to have a car wash, a bake sale, collecting cans & bottles and having a community yard sale. If you are interested in donating your cans and bottles or donating items for a yard sale in the Spring, please let me know.
