The foundation of the Rotary Club of Edina has provided $500 for the Cambia Hills Playground and Thinking Park in East Bethel. 
Cambia Hills built a state-of-the-art psychiatric residential treatment facility in the northern Twin Cities metro area. The facility opened in March and serves children ages 6-17 with complex mental health conditions. Medically managed care is provided 24/7.
The Rotary Club of Brooklyn Park is leading a project to build a Playground and Thinking park on two sides of the facility facing the units where children are living as patients. Besides a Little Tykes commercial playground, the project includes swings, benches, butterfly-attracting perennials, a raised vegetable garden, picnic tables, shaded structure, basketball half-courts. The Rotary Club of Edina is just one of a handful of clubs supporting the project.
“Children’s mental illness and their successful treatment is a key component of a successful future for [the greater Twin Cities metro],” said Lisa Jacobson of Cambia Hills. “With a rise in children’s suicide rates and a greater need for our schools to provide on-site mental health services, the need for Cambia Hills grows each day.” Visit for further information on the facility.
Money for grants awarded by the Edina Rotary Foundation is raised at an annual fall fundraiser and gala and donations made throughout the year.
