Camp K’s Tree of Hope at the Deseret News Home Show

Here at Camp K, it feels like we just finished summer camp yesterday. However the cold air outside and the beautiful change of colors in Emigration Canyon tells us a different story. Fall is here, winter is on its way.

Please join Camp K from Friday October 7th thru Sunday October 9th, for a very special display – The Christmas Tree Village at the Deseret News Home Show, and get into the spirit of holidays and feel the joy of giving! The event is at the South Towne Expo Center, in Sandy, Utah.

Camp K, along with 9 other local charities, have decorated a Christmas tree for this event. We know that it is a little early for Christmas – however, we have put our love, passion and dedication into creating a very unique Christmas Tree – “Camp K’s Tree of Hope”. We hope that your home is filled with the spirit of the season – and your heart is filled with magic, love, joy, hope, peace, and harmony.

Each tree will be available to purchase, in a silent auction. The auction closes at 3:00 pm on Sunday, the winners notified, and the trees can be taken home Sunday evening. There will also be a donation box next to each tree. All donations go directly to the charities of choice. The charity that collects most donations also has a chance to win “best in show”.

The Camp K’s “Tree of Hope” represents the magical experiences that happen at Camp K – experiences that have brought so much hope, joy, love and smiles to so many, for the last 50 years. Some of the decorations were created by our participants, using natural elements found at on our beautiful campus, including acorns, leaves, and pine needles. Some decorations symbolize the activities at Camp K. Other decorations were designed to honor our participant’s courage, bravery, resilience, selflessness, honesty, kindness, humility, and pure joy. Join us as we celebrate inclusion and empowerment!

Camp K is grateful to ABC4 Utah – Good4Utah, Marketplace Events (the producers of the Fall Home Show), Deseret News, The Home Depot(Christmas tree donor), and all the other parties for including us in this wonderful fundraiser. We are also grateful to Paula Sanders, our staff, and participants for helping us create and decorate the “Camp K Tree of Hope”. Please come to the Fall Home Show, and be sure to visit our tree in support of Camp K!
