YMCA Camp Whittle

The Seven Stars Foundation, Inc. has worked extremely hard since 2009 to get to where we wanted to be: sponsoring children of military members to Camp Whittle in Big Bear Lake.


Our first year in 2009 we were excited to sponsored 16 children. Every year our sponsored children grew and grew to nowadays sponsoring over 200 children to go to a summer camp in CA, TX, NE or MO for a week where they get to forget about everything back at home and experience the outdoors, learn new things and bond with others that share the same circumstance with their parent(s) are fallen, wounded, active, reserve or deployed.

To be there, talking with them, watching them experience this camp, interacting with other children and making new friends, has been so rewarding and worth the constant challenge of finding next year’s money. Thank you all who support and assist in our funding of our organization every day so we can give these children a life changing experience.

The purpose of this Foundation is to make a positive impact on the children of military members which include the fallen, wounded, active, deployed, and reservists. We accomplish this mission by sponsoring the children to YMCA camps across the country for a week where they can establish lasting bonds with new friends. We also provide relief to military members through financial, emotional, and educational assistance.

We Will Never Forget
