Shining Stars Foundation

The Grand Foundation generously supports the Grand County Family Adventure which is a camp for children with cancer or a life-threatening disease and their families at no cost to the families. The Shining Stars Foundation brings 250 Stars and family members to Winter Park each year for 4 days of fun and relaxation in Grand County each year in July.  For many families, due to the financial and emotional stress of their child’s illness, this is the only family vacation they can look forward to every year. The program forges strong bonds within families, while introducing them to a much needed network of other families who face similar challenges, creating lasting relationships. Families are given the chance to escape their troubles and enjoy a week together in the beauty of the High Rockies region of Colorado. Activities include boating, hiking, rafting, horseback riding, fishing, a day at Winter Park Resort, a free outdoor concert, and much more. This program has become one of our largest, as we cater to 250+ children and family members from Grand County, the state of Colorado and across the country. The Grand Foundation is one of the wonderful organizations in our valley that has supported this camp for many years. We would be unable to have this event without the support of caring organizations such as the Grand Foundation.

Shining Star Testimonial

“ Thank You!!! We absolutely love Winter Park, all the activities and the chance to just have fun with other families who have endured similar journeys. I can only imagine the orchestration needed to make such a week come together. I'm so humbled and grateful for all the time, activities and donation of property and food that is put into this. What really strikes me most is how many people just step forward to help a group of strangers and treat us like we are incredibly important. I can't really put into words what that does for a mending heart - it shines light when there has been a lot of darkness and gives us all the ability to just forget what ‘real life’ looks like for a while. This is a remarkable gift - the ability to just forget and have fun is incredible. So from everyone in our family, thank you for this amazing gift! May God bless you all.” – Sherman family
