Be sure to bring along any interested friends, as these events are a great way to introduce others to Chewonki. We rely on you to help us spread the word. Here are the events we’ve schedule so far:

T-shirts for a cause: For the second summer in a row, our staff initiated a fundraising effort for camper financial aid. The 2010 staff T-shirt was designed by members of the Boys Camp summer staff with the hopes of raising money for camper scholarships. The shirt was sold at a slightly higher price than the cost of the shirt to raise the money. We quickly sold all of the shirts. Further support came from Garth and Assistant Director Andy Richardson who offered matching funds to supplement the T-shirt profits. Not only were we able to raise nearly $568, but more importantly these funds came from our caring and supportive staff community, who were eager to help enrich the camp program that they already give so much to. That’s all for now. We look forward to keeping in touch through our blog throughout the year.
