Camp Gray featured on Culver's website

In 2006, when Topher Aderhold, assistant director of Camp Gray in Reedsburg, WI, visited Culver’s for the first time, he was excited to discover the Scoopie Token on the bag of every Kids’ Meal. When he learned that collecting ten Scoopie Tokens resulted in a free Kids’ Meal, he was determined to save up.

Topher found that saving up ten tokens wasn’t enough of a challenge, however, and he decided to make his goal bigger. Nearly six years later, he had saved up 500 Scoopie Tokens—enough to treat all 50 staff members at Camp Gray to free Kids’ Meals.

In 2012, Topher arranged a surprise trip to the camp’s local Culver’s restaurant. The restaurant welcomed the large group, and Scoopie even made an appearance. “That was a fun day,” said Topher. “The group was pumped! Staffers from that summer still talk about it.”

I didn't know the thing about saving up the Scoopie Tokens....

So I just visited Camp Gray on Friday, and I was really impressed.  Topher had said Bishop Morlino even personally visits camp a few times each summer.  Also, several of the campers have gone on to enter the priesthood or religious life.  I'm excited to be sending a couple of our kids this summer, the BC wife however was at least at first not thrilled with the idea of her babies being away from home.
