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:
  • * We’ll reach out to have you send us a recent picture and a brief story about why you are raising money for camp scholarships.
  • * We will create an online fundraising tool with your picture and story to share.
  • * You will share the link and invite people to help you raise funds for one camper to attend Youthfront.
  • * If you want to send out letters to your friends and family, we can supply you with letterhead and envelopes.
  • * As funds come in, the tool will automatically update to show your progress toward your goal of $500.

Bonus After Reaching Your Goal

The first $500 plus 10% of everything above goes toward camper scholarships. 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

  • * The first $500 will send one camper to camp

  • * 10% ($100) of the rest will also go toward camp scholarships

  • * Leaving you with a $900 bonus at the end of summer
