Donate to Campership at KNC
For many of us, childhood memories include long, summer breaks with ample time to play with friends, relax in the sun, and explore various interests. But in the greater Kalamazoo area, many children encounter obstacles to a carefree summer. A lack of financial resources often leaves vulnerable youth without access to summer fun and learning. That’s where KNC’s Campership Fund comes in.
For more than 20 years, KNC has raised Campership dollars to assist young people who would otherwise miss a KNC Camp experience. Supporting this year’s $30,000 Campership goal will impact the lives of approximately 170 children, ages 3 to 17. Your gift will provide access to a safe environment where each child, regardless of circumstance, can make new friends, gain self-confidence, and establish lifelong connections to the natural world.
Many Campership applications have already been received. That means local children are just waiting for the news that their family’s request will be granted. The average cost of a camp experience is $250. Your gift will help a family – perhaps several – overcome the financial barriers associated with a meaningful camp experience. Won’t you give the simple gift of a chance to play, relax, and explore? Whether you are a first time or returning donor to KNC’s Campership Fund, thank you for making this special investment in Kalamazoo area youth. Your donation will open up a world of fun and learning through a KNC Camp experience!
