LOS ANGELES – “Days of our Lives” and the Ken Corday Foundation have reaffirmed their commitment to making a difference in teen lives through a major sponsorship of $25,000 that will launch the ARROW-HEART Adventure Camps.
Arianne Zucker, two time Emmy nominee and her brother Todd Zucker are co-founders of ARROW-HEART. Through an exciting and challenging outdoor adventure camp experience ARROW-HEART equips teens at a crossroads with the survival skills to build a sense of self-worth, take responsibility for their lives, and ultimately, become an asset in their communities.
“Our philosophy is to cultivate critical thinking skills through a character and team building structure rooted in our six “C’s”: character, commitment, communication, critical thinking, credibility and compassion,” said Todd Zucker.
Arianne Zucker has played the role of Nicole Walker on “Days of our Lives” since 1998. The founding of ARROW-HEART with her brother Todd was the natural extension of her deep passion for making a difference in the lives of teens. Says Arianne: “I believe mentorship through a challenging camp experience connects us to the simplicity of the outdoors while providing the opportunity to build a strong sense of self-worth. These kids are our future and with the encouragement of our camp it is our mission to inspire them to be productive members of a world community.”
The ARROW-HEART Adventure Camps team consists of:
· Arianne Zucker, Creator/ Co-Founder and CEO
· Todd Zucker, Creator/ Co-Founder and Board Vice-President/School Administrator
· Steve Fenske, Executive Director/ Board President/Law Enforcement
· Billie DeYoung, Board Treasurer/Accountant
