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.
Donations to the Annual Appeal are accepted year-round, and assure 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.
In 2014, Brantwood provided 141 families assistance towards the $250 registration fee, with 54 of those requests being for the full tuition. Requests for assistance have been steadily climbing over the years and, with your help, we can continue to provide the scholarship that each family needs in order to make the dream of Camp a reality for their child.
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.
Every dollar counts and we thank you for your participation!
