Day 8: Building Self-Confidence

Gymnastic Camp Enrichment Program

Last year, FFC provided the funding for Madison to attend gymnastics camp last year which helped to rebuild her self-confidence and self-esteem.

We are always searching for ways our kids can become involved in enriching activities. As a creative outlet and a form of exercise, gymnastics is a great way for kids to stay active. As shown by the wide variety of summer camps and classes presented to our foster youth, they have a lot of choices on how to spend their summers!

If Madison wants to continue gymnastics after summer, the Foundation can financially assist her with classes year-round. After all, the Foundation is mainly interested in individualized support for things like extracurriculars.


For many foster children in Central Florida, the typical childhood experience of attending gymnastics camp would not be possible without the assistance of the Foundation for Foster Children. Children who attend summer camp are given a safe place to learn and grow and build up their self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence. They also build healthy relationships with peers and adults.

With your help, we can raise $10K in 10 Days to send children in foster care to summer camp. We can reach our goal with 100 people giving $100 or just 10 people giving $1,000!
