Here’s a Way to “Help the Other Fellow”

Camp Abnaki has been challenged like never before—and needs your help. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all Camp Abnaki programs have been cancelled for the first time in our 120year history. As a seasonal operation, camp is now faced with the challenge of a summer of lost revenue and ongoing costs. At the same time, we have been inspired by the widespread awakening to the longstanding injustices of systemic racism and we are eager to restart camp in 2021 as a community that is even more diverse and better positioned to help boys explore issues of empathy, equity, and inclusion. 

With the help of our generous donors, we know camp can overcome this challenge and return strong in 2021. To make a donation, click the buttons below. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our capital projects for 2020 include a new Tamakwa wash house, new kayaks and windsurfers, new mattresses for Chippe Village, and a new high ropes course!

 

Gifts can also be made to our annual Kids to Camp campaign. Click here to donate.

Donate Time or Services

GE helping to build our slingshot range.

Camp Abnaki has volunteer opportunities yearround. Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, we need help with work projects at camp in North Hero. Electricians, plumbers, and carpenters are particularly appreciated.    

Our 2020 fall work days are tentatively scheduled for September 26 and 27. Join us for a day or two at camp to help close down and prepare for 2021. Families are welcome. 

During the winter months there are other important ways to help camp. You can help us prepare mailings, make phone calls in support of our fundraising campaign, or help with other administrative tasks. These opportunities may be  at the camp office in Burlington or remotely. 

To find out more, and for a list of current projects contact the camp office at (802) 652-8180 or e-mail jkuypers@gbymca.org.
