Camp Moves Me A Yearly Success!
We Beat Our Goal!
The month of October has come to an end and so has our Camp Moves Me campaign. We are very pleased to say that we beat our goal by almost $1,000! We had a goal of beating the amount we raised in 2020 ($12,800), and this year we raised $13,780! This year we had 8 participants and 142 donors contribute to the campaign. We are so thankful to everybody who was involved. With their help, kids who could otherwise not come to camp will now be able to afford it!
Camp Moves Me is just one of the ways we receive donations but it is crucial to our Scholarship Fund as it has become a substantial part of our efforts. To join the movement participants just dedicate their October exercise (running, biking, swimming, hiking, walking, kayaking/canoeing, golfing etc.) to ask family and friends for donations. Donations go directly into the Camp Foley Scholarship Fund, thus directly impacting our campers. 93% of the money raised will be deposited into our fund so we can help get more kids to camp next summer (the other 7% goes to the American Camp Association).
We need to give a huge thank you to our 2021 participants!
We had 8 participants raise money for us this fall. We had everyone from alumni to current campers take part in the campaign. These participants were creative in the way that they moved, doing everything from photographing wild animals in Africa to frolfing. Thank you to: Alli Faricy, Nick Kronschnabel, Kylie Beltz, Ally Daily, Joe Harrington, Kevin Beltz, Henry Mogard, and Emily McGuire for your dedication to camp and raising money for such a great cause.
