Kisha is a Big Sister with the Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region in Philadelphia. Without Tickets for Kids, she never would have been able to take her Little Sister to soccer camp.
"My Little is super shy!” Kisha told us. “She told me a couple of times she was scared to attend the soccer camp, but I assured her that I would be there and she would have a great time.”
Participation in day-camp programs can have a significant effect on the attitudes of children attending. A national study of more than 3,500 children found that children, ages 10 to 16, demonstrated positive changes in their attitudes and perceptions regarding education, self-perceptions, and sportsmanship at the end of the program…even though it was only one day long!
“Everyone at the soccer camp was so friendly, from the coaches to the children to the parents in the stands! My Little indeed had a great time, what an experience! We appreciate all that you guys did, thank you Tickets for Kids.”
Way to go Kisha for helping your Little overcome her fear and enjoy camp.
