Current Fundraising Projects

“Pay Their Way” Camper Sponsorship

Sponsoring a week of camp is the perfect way to give a child a week to remember that will impact their life and faith. Our Pay Their Way program can provide funds to families who apply for sponsorship.

General Operating Donations

Unrestricted operating donations assist us in meeting the ongoing operating financial obligations of our organization, including paying our staff salaries, recurring bills, and unexpected costs that may arise outside of capital projects.  General operating donations are greatly appreciated!

Capital Projects

Capital donations help us to maintain and improve our physical property. If a particular project is over-funded or if it is determined that we cannot move ahead we will reallocate these funds to our next capital project in order of priority.  Capital donations are currently going to the following projects:

Mishewah Electrical Infrastructure

A major overhaul of our electrical infrastructure is an ongoing project.  This includes moving the bulk of the power lines underground to offer protection from weather and wear, improving power to campsites and cabins, and adding capacity for new cabins and other buildings.

Mishewah Portable Climbing Wall

We are currently raising funds for a new, portable climbing wall for Camp Mishewah.  The wall will be on a trailer, so we can transport and store it out of the harsh weather during the off season, as well as use it for camp-related events throughout the year.

Mishewah Waterfront Improvements

We love our amazing waterfront property!  Round Lake has so much to offer kids and families alike, and much of our programming is based around the water.  Over the last two years, we have been able to install a new Family Camp dock, replace some of our paddles and lifejackets, and purchase a new boat.  Further improvements will include sailboat repairs, replacement of further paddles and lifejackets, and more!

Stayner Cabin Refurbishment

As Stayner’s programming has transitioned from overnight kids camps to day camps, and our accommodations have been used primarily by family campers and rental groups, we have begun reimagining what our cabins can look like.  This spring we were able to complete renovations on a third cabin, with plans underway to refurbish even more to be convenient and usable for families, including installation of new flooring and wall paneling, replacing windows as needed, building new queen sized platform beds and bunks, and a fresh new paint job on the outside.  We hope these new family cabins will be a cozy and comfortable home-away-from-home for families coming to join us at Stayner Camp.

IT Infrastructure

Technology is ever changing!  The IT needs of our camps and campers continues to grow and change year to year, and we are constantly working to modernize our camp systems, networks, WiFi, security and more.
