Gift & Payment Information
THANK YOU FOR GIVING TO NORTH WOODS, PLEASANT VALLEY, AND SANDY ISLAND CAMPS
"The joy of seeing kids both expand their horizons and just plain have fun is why I give to camp with my time and my money. And the rewards are worth far more than the cost.” - Walter Parkinson, North Woods Camp Alumni
After overcoming the challenge of not being able to operate camp for the first time in 121 years, we are overjoyed to be preparing to open North Woods, Pleasant Valley and Sandy Island for the summer of 2021. It is with pride and purpose that we offer programming focused on improving both physical and mental health while empowering youth and families. All people need a respite from technology through the joys and magic of camp, through movement in nature, connection with others, and exposure to experiences where they can learn, grow, and thrive. Yet, we are seeing a significant increase in financial barriers because of Covid. Thanks to your donation, we are able to remove these financial barriers and create opportunities for families who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend this summer. Gifts to camp also support our teen leadership development programs and help us procure supplementary supplies needed to create a quality experience. Lastly, the legacy of our camp community and its traditions are also deserving of attention. It continues to be our mission to care for our property in a robust way through planning and physical maintenance work ensuring that camp is around for generations to come.
We realize we cannot do this alone, and rely on the time, talent, and treasure of the many others in our camp community to help us do this work. We know that when we come together with love in our hearts and respect for each other through genuine human kindness, there is nothing we can’t accomplish together. Thank you - we sincerely appreciate your support.
