Fundraising/Donations Needed for Camp Pumziko
It's our primary goal for all of our youth to have the quintessential summer camp experience - learning exciting new, fun and educational skills, set in the heart of nature.
Sharing living quarters and responsibilities with a group of same-aged campers from various cities, states and countries is not only a tremendous amount of fun, but also a great opportunity for personal growth and garnering of long lasting friendships.
Making decisions independently of the family, working as a team toward a common goal, and learning the skill of compromising, are character-building lessons that develop lifetime substance.
We gather only the very best experienced friendly staff, select the very best accommodations and utilize the most appropriate equipment.
Providing all of this, during a 7-day 6-night sleep-away camp, for our youth true value is intangible. However, the actual monetary cost is $1,000 per camper. This is significantly greater than the current registration fee. It is because we target the inclusion of our youth from underserved marginalized communities, we strive to keep the fees as low as possible.
To defray the actual cost, we rely heavily on dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer staff. And we have an ongoing fundraising campaign, both on-line and in our communities. This combination, in addition to soliciting financial and in-kind donations, help to supplement the true cost of camp.
