Camp Sycamore Creek, a 2010 Grant Recipient for the Predators Foundation, works to ensure that no inner city child is denied the benefits of summer camp due to financial disadvantage. The number one priority of the camp is to provide inner-city children with a summer camp experience that will enrich their physical, mental and spiritual growth.


Camp Sycamore Creek used the funds from the Preds Foundation grant to construct a new play structure that was named “Fort GNASH,” named after the Predators mascot.

On Wednesday, GNASH visited and interacted with children at the camp. Gary Semanchik, Director and owner of Camp Sycamore Creek was very excited about Fort GNASH. “The kids love it, they are able to climb up and slide down, and they play on it all day.”

For the 2009-10 season, the Nashville Predators Foundation distributed 117 grants totaling $305,000 to Nashville and Middle Tennessee-based community service and charitable organizations. These grants were designated to fund specific programs and projects, insuring the funds are benefiting those most in need of support and assistance.

Established in September 1998, the Predators Foundation strives to meet the educational, social, health and cultural needs of the community by offering unique resources and financial support to local youth-oriented organizations. All 501 © 3 organizations in Middle Tennessee are eligible to receive grants, which are distributed once a year.
