Darien Wellness Week was last month and it started with the first-ever Blooms for Campers Fun Run on Sunday, April 25th at Darien’s new park, Highland Farm! It was great to see our community join together for an important cause and have fun doing it. Thank you to OPUS for Person-to-Person for organizing the event and thank you to everyone who took part, from the sponsors to the runners, donors and everyone in between! Your support helped raise funds and awareness for the Person-to-Person campership program which sends children from local, low-income households to summer camp at no cost to their families.


Make the Future Bloom for elementary school children this summer! We know the pandemic has changed a lot of things but children still deserve a fun, safe, and academically enriching summer! This year more than ever low-income families right here in lower Fairfield County need our assistance. As many families are struggling to get back to work, providing for their children this summer is a source of worry and stress. Person-to-Person’s summer campership program helps meet this critical need. For children in P2P’s camp program, summer is filled with engaging activities and academic enrichment — and the opportunity to create new experiences, friendships and memories.

Please join us, along with OPUS for P2P, to help make the future bloom for hundreds of children, by providing them with a fun, safe, and academically enriching summer!
