Hi! My name is Lexi. I am 8 years old, and I go to Camp Lincoln every summer, and I have lots of fun. One day, I thought about the people who can’t pay to go to camp. I wanted to help them, because I wish everyone could have this experience. So I tried to think of an idea, and then suddenly (Light bulb!) I had a plan! I really love to make friendship bracelets and I thought I could use that as a way to start a scholarship for camp. I got a bracelet maker for my birthday, and it made them easier to make. I make the bracelets at home and then sell them for a dollar at the camp store. All the money goes to the Camp Lincoln scholarship fund. My goal is to make at least 395 bracelets to cover the cost of two weeks of camp for a child who wants to come to Camp Lincoln.
I learned how to make some types of bracelets at Camp Lincoln, and some from my mom. I know how to make braids, Chinese staircase, box stitch, butterfly and some others. I make bracelets out of gimp, string, yarn and duct tape. I make bracelets during the school year and sometimes during the summer, and my sister sometimes helps me. (She goes to Camp Lincoln too!)
I brought twenty bracelets to Winterfest at Camp Lincoln in January, and sold all of them!
If you want to help with this project, you can make bracelets and send them to camp, or you can donate supplies to make bracelets, such as embroidery floss, yarn, gimp or duct tape. You can drop them off at Camp Lincoln, or mail them to:
Lexi’s Bracelet Scholarship
PO Box 729
Kingston, NH 03848
See you at camp!
