Kids' camps get Bachman Foundation help

Posted

The Bachman Foundation distributed $22,225 during its fourth quarter awards presentation held recently at the foundation office.

The foundation has awarded $115,365 during its first year of operations, according to Bachman Foundation president Dr. Mark Frizzell.

Frizzell said the fourth quarter awards were given to students for summer activities.

“They were given to kids so they could attend camp,” Frizzell said.

The following awards were made to:

• Skyuka Hall — $8,400 for six students to attend their enrichment camp.

• Beacon Academy — $1,200 for two students to attend the Wells Kids in the Wild Camp.

• Lila Milburn — $325 for Lila to attend Chattanooga Christian Camp.

• Life Bridges — $7,500 for support at Camp Cherokee.

• Siskin Children’s Institute — $4,800 for 10 kids to attend their camp.

Previous recipients include Cleveland Christian School, Mending Arrow Ranch, Cleveland First Church of the Nazarene, Blackfox Equestrian Center, Ola Okanle, Skyuka Hall, Beacon Academy, Family Cornerstones, Inc., and Orange Grove Center.

The Bachman Foundation was established when Bachman Academy was closed in 2017, due to declining enrollment caused by more schools offering learning intervention programs for students with learning differences. The academy had housed students from all over the world.

The proceeds from the sale of its 206-acre campus are used to make the donations to organizations such as the ones listed above.
