Countdown to Camp Moves Me!
This year Camp Moves Me will take place during the month of November! We are coming off our most successful campaign ever in 2022, where we raised over $20,000! This November, as we prepare for our 100th Year of Camp Foley, we hope to beat our record from last year and raise more than ever before.
What is Camp Moves Me?
Camp Moves Me is our annual fundraiser that raises money for the Camp Foley Scholarship Fund, through the American Camp Association. Participants in Camp Moves Me spend their November exercising (running, biking, swimming, hiking, kayaking, push-ups/sit-ups, etc.) in order to raise money for the scholarship fund. By asking family and friends for donations, creating fun challenges, and sharing how camp has positively impacted their lives, participants will raise money throughout the month. All donations for Camp Moves Me are tax-deductible, as they go through the American Camp Association, a 501c3 organization. 93% of the money raised is deposited directly into the Camp Foley Scholarship fund, so we can help get more kids to camp next summer (the other 7% goes to the American Camp Association).
How Can I Help?
There are two main ways that you can help our Camp Moves Me campaign this November. You can either donate to the campaign or participate and raise money for Camp Moves Me.
