Dear Camp Cooper Supporters, 

Thanks to you, we have raised enough funds to keep the center up and running for the 2017-18 program year. It's hard to believe that this is only our third year of major fundraising - Cooper had always been funded fully by either TUSD or UA College of Education over the previous 50 years. Unfortunately, budget cuts to education have made that impossible, and we've successfully struck out on our own to find funding within our community.
