Camp Night 2019

an evening of adventure benefiting PALS Programs


PALS Programs creates weeklong camp experiences for young adults with Down syndrome and their peers. Together, participants explore new cities, challenge perspectives, and form powerful friendships that build a world of greater inclusion and acceptance. As one volunteer described, “[PALS] reminds me of what is truly important and of who I truly am.” Camp Night is the one night of the year where guests can experience the joy of Camp PALS by participating in the exclusive activities that make PALS so unique and transformative for our community.

2019 Camp Night fundraising event is unlike any fundraising event out there. The theme is “Race Around CAMP PALS” and will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at The Mann Center in Philadelphia, PA. Guests will feel the Camp energy as soon as they arrive. After cocktails, guests will participate in Camp Games on an assigned team, by racing to various Camp PALS “locations” set up throughout the property. Teams will explore and compete in traditional PALS activities, like karaoke, a fashion show, PALS Olympics, wine tasting, and more, led by campers and volunteers from around the country. After Camp Games, everyone will feast and enjoy a short program followed by live music for the rest of the evening.

Camp Night is a fun, high-energy evening of amazing food, special drinks, new friends and experiences, and great times. Funds raised at this event will support PALS continued growth, making it possible for more campers, volunteers, and locations to be part of our mission to create a more inclusive world for all.
