Special Needs Children's Committee

Point Pleasant Elks Lodge's Special Needs Children's Committee (SNCC) supports the NJ Elks State Project, Camp Moore, which provides a camping experience for special campers at no cost, but also works locally in the Point Pleasant, Point Pleasant Beach and Bay Head area to assist special needs children and young adults.  In addition, the committee provides free loaners of wheel chairs, walkers, crutches and other equipment for anyone who needs them.

Throughout the year the SNCC raises funds for the children it sponsors, assists with South East District projects and of course, besides providing funding, provices a day at the shore for Camp Moore campers on the last Wednesday in July.  The day begins with a boat ride, followed by a picnic and games back at the lodge.  After lunch fire trucks and emergency vehicles from the surrounding area take our visitors on a ride through the borough with sirens blazing - the hightlight of their day.  Finally, back at the lodge, ice cream awaits for them before they load up the buses for the ride back to Camp Moore.  A large number of volunteers and contributions assure the success of this day at the shore.

The Committee participates in the State's Special Children's Scholarship as well as locally provides scholarships to graduating special needs students.

The committee also sponsors a Christmas Party with games, gifts, lunch and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.  Again, all of this is possible with volunteers and contributions given to the SNCC.
