Fundraising for Camper Scholarships

Each year, about 150 campers are able to attend Youthfront Camps because of a scholarship fund. It costs about $500 to send a camper to one full session of camp. Part of the Summer Staff job description is to use their networks of families and friends to help one camper who otherwise couldn’t attend a session of camp. Here’s how it works:
  • * You will receive access to a personalized fundraising tool where you will upload a picture and write a brief story.
  • * The online tool will create a link for you to share with your friends and family about your campaign.
  • * You will create a list of 50 names and identify how you will share your campaign with each (Text, DM, letters, etc.)
  • * We will supply you with letterhead and envelopes for any paper letters you wish to send. We will also supply you with templates that you can use to compose your letters or online appeals.
  • * As funds come in, the tool will automatically update to show your progress toward your goal of $500.

Bonus After Reaching Your Goal

After reaching your goal, you will receive a bonus equal to 90% of what you raise above $500. That bonus will be paid at the end of the summer. It’s a Win-Win for campers and for you!


  • * Let’s say you raise $1500 (YAY! Three campers get to go to camp!)

  • * You will earn a bonus equal to 90% of what you raise above the $500 minimum expectation.

  • * In other words, you would earn a $900 bonus at the end of summer
