Or maybe you read about Jaylyn. The Spain Grant campership program made it possible for him to come to camp during a very stressful time in his family. Camp was a chance for him to focus on being a child.
We are very proud of those stories, but we also think your story is important.
How did Camp make a difference in your life?
What is it about Camp that you want to share with the young people in your life?
Can you think of young people in your community who would be blessed by Camp, but whose families can't afford to send them?
This Giving Tuesday we are making a special appeal for donations to the Campership Fund.
#GivingTuesday is a movement that started in 2012, as a reaction against all the crazy consumerism during the Christmas season.
After Thanksgiving the US "celebrates" Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday... and now Giving Tuesday, a time to donate to worthy charities that make the world a better place.
What a great way to kick off the season of giving!
This year, our Giving Tuesday campaign is focused on passing the camp experience on to campers who are in need of financial assistance.
Our Campership Fund has been well supported over the past few years, but we have also increased the number of camperships we award each year.
Will you help us make sure that we never have to turn campers away because of financial need?
If Camp has made a difference in your life, please consider making a donation to our Campership fund on Giving Tuesday.
You can do that at our #GivingTuesday Crowdrise Page (please share the page with your friends too!). You can also set up a recurring donation at our giving page hosted by Network for Good.
