We now have a closed group in Facebook that any of our families can join and share anything, thoughts, questions, answers, tips, hints, photos, support, so Anything and Everything. The only people that can see what you post are the folks in the group. Everyone else can see who belongs and request to be invited. If you know someone that should be in the group, let me know, or send them to me. Thanks a bunch! We currently have 13 members. Cheryl & Bob
In the beginning………………My name is Cheryl Krajcsik. I am the Executive Director of Captains Sharing & Caring. I have 22 years as an avid boater and in that time have orchestrated for multiple persons, the joy of getting out on the water. The water is a continuous flow of hope and encouragement to me; with the clean, freshness you feel when you are on the water. There’s nothing more beautiful than to be able to experience our lives with no distractions, no street lights, no car horns, no electric wires, just you and the fresh, clean air and crisp, cold water beneath your boat.
Hi, my name is Bob Krajcsik. I am one of the board members & the ‘better half’ of our Executive Director, Cheryl.I believe in safety on the water and will continue to pursue avenues of learning. We want to have fun, pleasant outings, with our first priority being safety. The dream started about 5 years ago in the middle of the Susquehanna River, Cheryl and I were floating down the river in our boat one weekend, the winds were calm, the river almost like a lake, flat with a few ripples, the sun shone bright. I said “it doesn’t get any better than this”. Cheryl, you know what I would like to do? I would like start a group to take kids and their families out on the water. Youth who have been ill or are disadvantaged, and need a break from life. If only for a few hours, just to relax, not worry about anything, just be free……Thus the journey began.

Congrats to all of our volunteers as well! It takes all of us, to make this happen for these children and their families.
It is not an easy task to be a parent, or sibling of a sick child.
So, if we can do this for the children and their families, it is sincerely our honor to do so.
Go call Captains Sharing & Caring..
Plans have begun for Summer 2014. If you are interested in hosting Captains Sharing & Caring for an afternoon, please let us know.
We have several hosts signed up already, so give us a call if you want a certain month or date.
It is our desire to be a fun resource to children and families with special needs & to be a nice outlet for other agencies seeking some respite and fun for their special needs children and families. We identify special needs as any diagnosed disorder like ADD, Autism, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Spina bifida, heart problems, or any number of other syndromes or medical disorders. We also work with “at risk” children and their care givers, and welcome the opportunity to bring them a day of respite and fun as well. .
If you know of a family that would benefit from Captains Sharing & Caring, please send them our way. OR, if you would like to volunteer please give us a call or send us an e-mail.
Thank you! Bob & Cheryl
