Individual donations are essential to keep the Camp Kinderland community vital and thriving. There are so many ways that you can contribute to Camp Kinderland to make a difference in the lives of not just the campers who enjoy our programming every summer, but also your friends and family who love Camp Kinderland and want to see it thrive for generations to come.
Our campers love to participate in sports and athletic activities, but our sports and waterfront facilities are outdated and rundown. With your help, we can have a re-sculpted softball field! New bleachers! New boats and lifejackets for our waterfront! Badminton and bocce courts! Weatherproof equipment storage bins! And more!
You’ve heard our pitch! Here’s how you can step up to the plate for Camp Kinderland:
Here’s how it works: we have 40 days to raise $40,000 through online donations, big and small. This campaign relies heavily on lots of small donations, like $10, $15 and $25. And the campaign can only be successful if the members of our community act as advocates and ambassadors of Camp Kinderland by reaching out to their personal, professional, and school networks to raise funds. Our community of campers, parents, grandparents, alumni, staff, and friends is more than 2000 strong. But if every member of our community gets even one friend or family member new to Kinderland to contribute, we can be 4000 strong! And just a $10 donation from each of those people brings us right to $40K in no time. We can do it!
Your general donation will go where the need is highest to operate the summer camp. Your unrestricted donation makes a huge difference, and our campers thank you!
Many choose to honor the memory, accomplishment, birthday, or other special event of a loved one by donating to Camp Kinderland in their name. We can send a card to the namesake of your generous donation informing them that you (or an anonymous donor) have donated in their name.
Every fall, Camp Kinderland hosts its Annual Phonathon Fundraiser to request donations for our Camper Scholarship Fund, and providing scholarships to camper families in need would be impossible without it. Or donate to one of the established in memoriam scholarship funds.
Support maintenance and improvements for existing structures, and help fund needed new buildings. Learn more about the projects on our to-do list, and donate to make them a reality.
