Hundreds of children will spend one or two weeks of their summer vacations on the shores of Lake Vera. Dozens of families spend a Spring or late-Summer weekend climbing the ropes course, swimming in the falls, and enjoying the company of their own and other families.
As you probably know, Camp Augusta is a non-profit organization. We receive no money from the City of Piedmont or any other governmental assistance. All camp operating expenses, such as food, counselors' salaries, insurance and electricity, are paid by camp tuition and rental fees from outside groups. We detail exactly where the tuition money goes, and all new programs and structures are due to gifts, which allows us to keep our tuition several hundred dollars less, and as much as $1000 less than a few other camps.
Non-profit organization. Unless you’ve worked for one, especially a small one, it is unlikely that you can appreciate the need and gratitude for gifts both small and large. It means that we rely on donations for many of the things we have and do at camp. Our magnificent lodge was a grant. Families barely making ends meet are able to give their kids the wonderful gift of Camp Augusta because of scholarship donations. Many of our program supplies were donated to us. Only through your generosity can we continue to fund these worthy improvements to your camp.
As you consider options for distributing your philanthropy, please consider Camp Augusta. We welcome a variety of donations, from financial contributions to building materials, services, or program equipment.
