Kasota East Camp – Campership Fund

Campership donations are required to support those who would not be able to attend camp without financial support.

In 2018 we had 55 donors who supported 82 campers to attend Kasota East Camp. So fair this year we have 9 donors and a growing waitlist of applicants. There are many families who are struggling this year. Some who have never used Campership before and are long time campers, need help this year. Those that needed help last year need it again.

So, please! Those who can support the Campershiip Fund please do so generously. One week at camp costs about $400. Make cheques payable to Kasota East Camp.
