Aurora Day Camp, Georgia’s first camp to be offered free of charge for children with cancer and their siblings, opened its doors on the grounds of Davis Academy last summer.
Following the success of the inaugural summer, Aurora Day Camp has named Davis Academy as its first office location. Greg Hill, executive director; Sami Tanenbaum, director of camp and year-round programs; Kristin Boggs, director of development; and, Kay Charles, coordinator of camp and year-round programs will be using Davis Academy facilities as their home base, both throughout the school year and during the summer.
“The Davis Academy has been an incredible partner to Aurora Day Camp and has been instrumental in making our day camp a reality for the Atlanta community,” said Greg Hill, Aurora Day Camp’s executive director.
Head of Davis Academy, Amy Shafron said, “We were pleased to be able to put our school’s values of community, righteousness, and respect into action by opening our home for this unique and special program which, after a successful inaugural summer, has solidified plans to return to Davis this summer and going forward.”
“All we are trying to do is give back a normative childhood to these children,” said Hill, “and to do so, we need community partners who understand our mission and values, such as the Davis community. Our new office location will further our efforts to impact the lives of children affected by cancer in the metropolitan Atlanta area. We will be in Atlanta as long as we are needed because until there is a cure for cancer, there’s Aurora.”
