Alexs Lemonade Stand coming to Learning Treehouse
Placeholder Image

In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer and round out their kid’s choice week, The Learning Treehouse summer camp will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand on Friday from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at 250 Goshen Rd.

The Learning Treehouse Summer Camp travels all around the Coastal Empire and surrounding areas throughout the summer. Each of their 12 weeks of camp has a learning theme that trips are based around. A few themes include; arts and crafts, beach and ocean discovery, around the world with food, farming, and our mother earth. The week of July 18 is “Kids’ Choice Week.” The children participated in Alex’s Lemonade Stand last summer and had such a wonderful time; they requested that we hold another stand.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). 2011 marks 11 years since 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer.

Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $30 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 125 research projects nationally.
