For the Love of Camp

The Menominee Philosophy

Our mission is to help unlock the potential of our campers so they can be the best version of themselves. While we offer a dynamic program of athletic, aquatic, outdoor, and creative activities, we don’t think it is enough to simply teach our boys how to swing a bat, get up on water-skis or shoot a bullseye. Campers today are capable of so much more and we want to help bring out the best in each of them. At Menominee, we follow a set of core values designed to foster personal development and teamwork. The boy your son wants to be, will grow at Camp Menominee.

ATTENTION CM FAMILY: LET'S GET BEHIND THIS!
The CM Family always supports causes and people who are paying it forward. Two weeks from today Owen Fitzgerald and his sister Cailyn will be leading the "Pedal Power" bike donation effort!

it was started almost 10 years ago by another Wilmette family when their 3rd grader wanted to find a way to pass along her bike to another kid who wasn't able to have one of their own.

Now that both kids have gone to college, the Fitzgeralds have picked up where they left off. The mission of Pedal Power is to collect gently used bikes and give them to students at Chicago Public Schools who achieve the honor roll as a reward for all their hard work.

Over the past 10 years, Pedal Power has collected over 3,500 bikes at collection locations across the North shore and Western suburbs. The main school they partner with is Cesar Chavez Multicultural Academic center where they award kids of all ages who make the honor roll. If a bike is damaged, they partner with the Northside learning center who uses the bikes and parts for educational purposes for the programs for kids with disabilities. It's a great organization run by kids for kids!

The collection date this year is November 2nd from 9am-Noon. The more bikes collected, the more kids can be provide da bike! Any help you can provide to increase awareness would be greatly appreciated!
