Connor spent his summers at Camp Champions, a place he considered his second home. He often mentioned giving back to the camp he received so much from. If you asked Connor what set himself apart and helped shape him, he would have always included Camp Champions and his camp family in his answer. The Champions Education Foundation is a 501©3 which provides financial assistance for children to attend summer camp who do not have the financial resources to do so.
