wish list & financial aid fundraising

Each year, the value of camp increases, while tuition has remained the same for the past five years. In total, tuition only covers 46% of camp costs. Generous sponsors, individual donors, foundations, and Value In-kind donations provide exceptional experiences for our campers and volunteers. Donations also provide financial assistance to campers who could not otherwise afford to attend.
