The fine print: The coordination of winning the sessions of camp are to be worked out between YOU, the winner, and the CAMP for summer 2020 subject to availability. 510families is not liable for lack of availability, bad weather, or anything of the sort. No cash value to be given in place of camp. All camp sessions are provided by the camp and we are so grateful. The value of the prize varies by camp. Participation in this camp giveaway program was sponsored.
Thanks again to our awesomesauce camp sponsors!
We will begin camp giveaways all at once. All contests will run concurrently for four weeks. Winners will be contacted by us and have 48 hours to respond before we choose another winner. And so on.
