Amici's Exciting News!
We have exciting news to share!
As of today, Amici Camping Charity has a new look and will now be known as Amici Children’s Camp Charity providing a clear and concise understanding of who we support and what we provide.
Along with this change comes a new visual identity that better showcases the activities, environment and unique community associated with camp life. Check out how the green of the forest, blue of the waterways, orange of a glowing campfire and yellow of summer sunshine embody the camp spirit and together better capture the essence of what Amici is all about.
We hope you are as excited as we are and we are confident this new visual identity will help us generate more awareness of Amici. This will help us foster new partnerships within the camping community ensuring the support of our donors will have an even deeper impact on the children we support.
