Every summer, the campground experiences natural wear as a result of several hundred campers and staff using it to its full potential. And every fall and winter, the buildings are covered with fallen leaves, and snow covers the entire landscape. While it is a beautiful sight to behold, it is also incredibly taxing on the buildings and other structures, as well as the gardens, waterfront, and sports fields. Also, several trees, some of which exceed a hundred years of age, die and sometimes fall on or near buildings, or threaten to.
Due to mandatory upgrades to our fire response system and septic system in the last five years, in combination with low enrollment as a result of the Great Recession in 2008/9, we have depleted our fund for emergency capital improvements. Please consider making a donation today to help us build our capital improvement campaign to what it once was. This will allow Camp Kinderland to continue to provide competitive tuition and more than $60,000 in camper scholarships every year while continuously doing the necessary maintenance on the campground, and preparing ourselves for future emergency capital improvements.
When receiving online donations, Camp Kinderland incurs a credit card fee of 5%. If you would like to help cover the processing fee, select “Cover the processing fee” under Donation Options when you make your credit card donation online. We really appreciate it!
