Since 1904, Brantwood Camp has not turned away any child from the joys of summer camp due to a family's lack of ability to pay. Brantwood is supported to a large extent by its alumni/ae and generous Friends of Brantwood. Although the families of campers pay registration fees, the actual costs of a session at camp far exceed this fee. Providing campers with an 80% scholarship towards the actual cost of Camp (about $1,700 per camper) is a challenging task that is vital to the mission of our organization.
The Annual Appeal assures that a two-week overnight camping experience is affordable for every camper. Some families need assistance with the already subsidized $250 registration fee for a two-week summer camping experience. In effect, every camper is on scholarship.
This past summer Brantwood provided the highest number of scholarships ever. A total of $31,962.00 was provided to the 160 families who requested assistance toward the $250 registration fee. Requests for assistance have been climbing each year and, with your help, we can prepare for another record year of scholarship requests in 2014.
Each year, we ask that you think about why giving to Brantwood, in particular, is a good thing. In a world full of uncertainty, violence and moral challenges, Brantwood gives wholeheartedly to sustaining, teaching, and preserving the ideals that we have all learned: Honesty, Loyalty, Cooperation, Good Sportsmanship, Unselfishness, and Respect.
Last year, the Annual Appeal and your support raised nearly $110,000. This year, we need to exceed this by 10%, and we need your participation! Every dollar counts!
