Zajac Ranch for Children receives $25,000 donation

Money will subsidize the Down Syndrome, Epilepsy, and Muscular Dystrophy Camp, set for July 16-20

Zajac Ranch for Children in Mission has just received new financial support from Mayne Inc.

The $25,000 donation will subsidize the Down Syndrome, Epilepsy, and Muscular Dystrophy Camp, set for July 16-20 at the ranch.

“We are extremely grateful for the support of Mayne Inc.,” said Carmen Zajac, president of Zajac Ranch for Children.

“For many children with special medical needs, the care they require is often too great to allow them to attend a traditional camp.”

Each summer camp session is designed to ensure campers have optimal support from medical staff, volunteers, and peers with similar medical conditions.

“Mayne is excited to begin a partnership with Zajac,” said Mike Heppell, president, CEO and founder of Mayne Inc.

About the ranch:

Zajac Ranch for Children is a fully accessible and inclusive summer camp that welcomes children and young adults with medical conditions and disabilities.

Since welcoming its first campers in 2004, thousands of children have benefited from a camp experience that recognizes and appreciates the unique challenges they face.
