Another strange yet rewarding season is in the books. Youth sessions were held with increased Covid safety precautions in place. I attended Adult Session (try it some time – it’s tons of fun!!). We adults also wore masks indoors and tested before we came. We learned, we laughed, we sang, we ate, we reconnected and bonded with new campers. This is what you helped to make possible.
You, our community, continue to amaze me in your generosity. I am so glad you have decided that the Nature Camp Foundation is a worthwhile place to “put your money where your mouth is”. You ensure that the Foundation can continue to support Nature Camp in its Capital Improvement and Maintenance Programs, along with providing scholarships to worthy campers. This year, through September 27th, you have enabled us to reach 54% of our annual operating fundraising goal ($45k+ of $85k). Thank you.
We are working on creating new meaningful ways for donors to memorialize and celebrate their loved ones. While Named Scholarships come immediately to mind, we are preparing a menu of other offerings, at varying value levels, for donors to consider as gift opportunities. Please be patient as we flesh this menu out.
Please never hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org when you are considering a loving memorial. I am always interested in having this conversation.
