The state will provide funding to assist Camp Good Days and Special Times after the facility — which serves children and families affected by cancer — sustained serious damage following the flash flooding and storms that hit the region last week. The camp is in Branchport, on the northern end of Keuka Lake.
Lt. Gov. Robert J. Duffy announced the funding Monday during a visit to Penn Yan to tour storm damage. The damage is estimated at $60,000.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo also implemented a state of emergency for Yates County and sent state resources to flood-damaged areas in the Finger Lakes.
Camp Good Days and Special Times Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life challenges. All of its programs and services are provided free to participants.
