Dream Kids, ages 5-21, are identified through a referral process established with designated partners in each chapter area to include children’s hospitals and special education programs.
Once a child is identified, we then engage in a multi-step interview process to determine if they are a good fit for a Dream Experience that is centered around sports. Once approved, our staff team works tirelessly to make their dreams come true by planning an unforgettable experience, tailored just for them!
Our team creates a unique, multi-day experience customized for each Dream Kid and their favorite athlete, team, or sporting event. The Dream Kids’ favorite foods and activities are included during the experience for some added fun. Each Dream Experience begins with a V.I.P. send-off (sometimes it is a complete surprise, which is super fun) before they are whisked away to kickoff their multi-day experience.
From the initial referral partner, to the Dream On 3 staff team, to the volunteer Dream Leader, to the professional photographer and videographer… it takes a fantastic (and comprehensive) team to pull together an over-the-top Dream Experience.
This wonderful group of people, who is laser-focused on making a sports dream come true, is often referred to as the “Dream Team”. With everyone working on this common goal, success and happiness are guaranteed!
