Sail to Alaska and Send a Child to Camp
It is that time of year when Cruise Specialists clients can make plans to set sail on an exciting 12 night cruise to Alaska on the luxurious Crystal Symphony and at the same time help send a child affected by childhood cancer to an uplifting and spirited camp. For each reservation on this special cruise sailing roundtrip from San Francisco on June 2, 2011, Cruise Specialists will donate the funds to send a child to Camp Okizu.
Okizu is committed to the continuing support of the childhood cancer community through its Oncology and Siblings camping programs, Family weekends, Bereavement programs, and Teen and Young Adult Programs. The mission of Okizu is to provide peer support, respite, mentoring, and recreational programs to meet the needs of all members of families affected by childhood cancer.
“I worked as a counselor at Camp Okizu for 20 years and saw first-hand how the camp provided an environment and atmosphere unlike any other place where kids with a common challenge could share and support one-another in a way that no one else can,” described Cruise Specialist Vice President Greg Nacco. For more information please visit Okizu Foundation.
The Camp Okizu Benefit Cruise is hosted by former travel industry insider and Camp Okizu Founder, John H. Bell. As part of the exclusive lineup of events onboard, cruisers will enjoy several festive parties and a special group dinner at Prego restaurant. Travelers will not only get to meet and socialize with new people but also find out more about the camp and their mission on their journey to and from Alaska.
The Symphony will take its guests to the delightful cities of Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia, through the majestic Inside Passage, and on to explore some of Alaska’s most charming and historic towns of Sitka, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. Learn more about the Camp Okizu Benefit Cruise.
