Thanks for Helping Fund-A-Need!

May 16, 2023 | Our Stories

What an incredible achievement! Thanks to the generosity of our donors, NEISD is thrilled to announce that we will be building a magnificent 50 ft rappel tower at Camp Henson. This exciting addition will elevate the camp’s capabilities and firmly establish our District as a leader in developing tomorrow’s leaders. We understand that the rappel tower may pose a challenge for some students, but we believe it will provide an invaluable opportunity for them to push themselves to new heights, conquer their fears, and achieve their goals. Not only that, but rappel training is also an excellent team-building experience that fosters trust and connection among students. We’re proud to say that this rappel tower will be the first of its kind, located outside of a military base. Thank you once again to all our generous donors – together, we’re making a real difference!
