Ways to Donate to Camp Menogyn

Annual Fund

Each year we ask for your support to keep a long-standing tradition of exceptional camp experiences alive and well. Your donation helps campers—more than 700 in 2018—develop character, build skills, learn from nature and make lasting friends and memories.

In 2019, over 220 scholarships were provided to Menogyn campers. In all over $250,000 was given out in financial assistance. Many of our scholarship recipients have never been on a family vacation, paddled a canoe or slept out beneath the stars. Your donation makes these life-changing experiences possible for all children, regardless of their family’s income.

With your help, Camp Menogyn can:

  • Offer camp scholarships so that no one is turned away due to financial need
  • Purchase essential program equipment and supplies
  • Provide quality training programs for camp staff

  • One three-person dome tent costs $500.
  • A customized first aid kit for an extended trip costs $205.
  • Complete reconditioning of one wood canoe costs $875 and 60+ hours of labor.
