By all accounts, the first Big Brothers Big Sisters Kamp Keystone camping weekend was a rousing success.
Held June 8-10 at Twin Mills Camping Resort, 13 “Bigs, “Littles” and staff members basked in near perfect weather while enjoying hiking, fishing, swimming and roasting marshmallows.
Kamp Keystone was started in 2007 as a way for Keystone employees to actually use and enjoy the RVs they manufacture while providing valuable product feedback to the company. This year, Keystone decided to take it a step further by inviting Big Brothers Big Sisters to join in the fun.
Keystone RV president Matt Zimmerman says Kamp Keystone is another way for the company to give back to the community. “The Keystone family is one of the largest contributors to the Elkhart County United Way,” he said.
“Throwing the doors open to Kamp Keystone enables us to do even more. As the father of two young boys, I personally believe camping with your family is one of the best investments you can make. Through Kamp Keystone we expect to make a positive contribution in these young people’s lives.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters Executive Director Stephanie Patka added, “The strength of the BBBS program lies within the opportunities where ‘Bigs’ can be a positive example to their ‘Littles.’ These experiences are enhanced when ‘Littles’ are exposed to things that they never even knew existed,” noted B “For many of our ‘Littles’ and even some of our ‘Bigs,’ Kamp Keystone was their first exposure to camping. We are thrilled to partner with Keystone and create this tremendous experience for our ‘Littles’ that will last a lifetime.”
