"Good Karma Tuesday" Benefits Camp Soaring Eagle

Flagstaff, Ariz. (June 24, 2016)

On August 8, Good Karma Tuesday will benefit Arizona-based nonprofit Camp Soaring Eagle. Ten percent of Karma Sushi’s proceeds on this day will help support Camp Soaring Eagle in its mission to bring the healing power of laughter to seriously ill children. The local nonprofit provides seriously and chronically ill children with the opportunity to attend medically supervised camps at no cost to the families.

The organization offers a variety of programs to Arizona families and children ages 6-15 with chronic and life threatening illnesses including: Illness Specific Camping Weekends, Illness Specific Family Retreats, Sibling Camper Weekends, Summer Camp programs and Veteran’s Children Camper Weekends. Depending on the program, campers enjoy a wide range of activities such as horseback riding, fishing, archery and crafts. Each event is specifically tailored to the child’s individual needs and medical restrictions. Campers are usually referred to Camp Soaring Eagle from their pediatricians and medical professionals volunteer each weekend to provide the highest level of safety and care.

Illness-specific programs are geared towards campers and families facing a variety of illnesses such as: blood disorders, cancer, bowel diseases, respiratory diseases and type 1 diabetes. Camp Soaring Eagle gives children a chance to interact with peers facing the same battles and a place where they don’t have to feel alone or different anymore.
