Hey there, PALS people! Thanks for checking out our Camp PALS Poconos 2017 Wish List.
Located at the University of Scranton, Camp PALS Poconos takes full advantage of all the awesome things to do in the Electric City. Last year, Campers and Counselors spent a day in the sun at Promised Land State Park, took a trip to Montage Mountain waterpark, and even got to throw out the first pitch at a Railriders baseball game! In addition to all those fun activities, this year, we’ve made some exciting new additions to the schedule, such as a Camper Fashion Show.
As a team of first-time directors, we’ve enjoyed learning the ropes of leading a Camp and adding our own flare to the program, and below are a few things we’re fundraising for that would make Camp PALS Poconos even more spectacular!
Please consider making a donation to make our Wish List items a reality. You can donate for specific items through our fundraising page here.
Wish list items:
Supplies for the Fashion Show – $350
Inspired by Camp PALS New York, we’re fundraising to be able to purchase second-hand clothing, decorations for the event, such as a “runway,” and art supplies for our campers to put on the best fashion show Scranton has ever seen. We can’t wait to see our campers put their creativity to work!
Fancy Dinner before the Semi-Formal Dance – $1000
To celebrate the last night of Camp, we would love to upgrade our meal before the semi-formal dance. These funds would go towards food and “fancy” beverages, like sparkling cider, for our Campers and Volunteers.
Camp Swag – $1000
The past few summers, Camp PALS Poconos has provided awesome camp-specific items for campers and counselors, and we would love to be able to do that again this summer.
Last year, our campers and volunteers took home super cool bucket hats, and we think our camp would enjoy taking home a similar item to remember Camp PALS Poconos 2017 forever!
Total fundraising goal = $2350
Thank you in advance for your support and donations to make Camp PALS Poconos the best week of the summer!
Maggie, Dominic, & Chris
