Make It Better – Spotlight on Camp No Worries
Camp No Worries is an overnight summer camp created to give children who have or have had cancer and their siblings an opportunity to relax, enjoy themselves and forget about their troubles for one week every summer. Campers range in age from 6 to 16 years old, and take part in traditional summer camp activities such as swimming, nature, arts and crafts, land sports, archery, zip-lining and more. The camp environment is safe, comfortable, medically supervised and most of all, fun! Camp No Worries is volunteer-run and is free of charge to the families of the campers.
Paris is proud to support Camp No Worries and their mission to provide a place where children facing a diagnosis of cancer can relax, make friends, and simply just be kids.

“Make it Better” was established so employees could partake in giving back on behalf of Paris. Employees can nominate local charities that are near and dear to them. The nomination is then reviewed by an employee panel to be sure it fits within certain established criteria.
