Six Emily Sandall Camperships Awarded at Camp Menogyn

 These very deserving campers with impressive community service were awarded an Emily Sandall campership towards their trip at YMCA Camp Menogyn this summer.The scholarship application is below.Paul started this fund after his awesome 2008 PCT hike and it has grown with our wonderfully generous Foundation community donations.

We hope that the campers have a wonderful summer at YMCA Menogyn and continue their love for the wilderness and community service.I know Emily would be proud!We want to thank Camp Menogyn Director Meghan Cosgrove for all of her help in awarding these camperships!

History and Background of Campership:

Emily Sandall was a Menogyn guide from 2001-2004. Her passions included wilderness adventures and

humanitarian service. When not leading canoe and backpacking trips she worked with street children and

child laborers in Nepal and Mexico. She saw many opportunities in life to teach, to challenge, to laugh, and

dance, and sing and camp, and especially to help others. She lived simply but passionately. Tragically Emily

died in an accident Nov. 2006, at the age of 25.

The Sandall Family and the Emily Sandall Foundation have established YMCA Camp Menogyn camperships in

Emily’s name in an effort to keep alive her spirit of giving and her love for Menogyn. The scholarship is

designed to help a deserving young person experience a Menogyn wilderness trip. The recipient should

show passion for helping others through some community service work. Emily in her short and remarkable

life always tried to combine wilderness adventure with helping others. Her family hopes to foster that in

others through this scholarship.

It is the Sandall family’s hope that this scholarship stimulates interest in community service and wilderness

exploration in deserving teens over many years.

Emily would love to know that her scholarship helps a teen experience the wilderness. She would also love

to spread the message of the importance of volunteer service- helping those less fortunate by giving them

a voice. Emily’s life work combined her love for the wilderness and humanitarian service with passion and

joy. Please tell us how these values are demonstrated in your life.
