If you or your children have been to summer camp, you know first hand how critical that experience can be in their development. Acceptance, self-confidence, positive role models, friendships, and a love for the outdoors are just a few of the things that Mountain Camp Woodside gives to campers. Your donations to the Mountain Camp Woodside Scholarship fund will send deserving children to camp that could not otherwise afford to do so. Now more than ever, children need the life skills, experiences and time in nature that camp provides.
Mountain Camp Woodside and the American Camp Association are working together to send deserving children to camp.
Mountain Camp Woodside has partnered with two outstanding non-profit groups: S.M.A.R.T. and Real Options for City Kids and we are asking for your help. When you are completing your online Camper Registration, you now have the option of contributing a tax-deductible donation to the Mountain Camp Woodside Scholarship Fund. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Like no other youth activity, camp has the ability to shape life-long attitudes and behaviors. It is a place where children are treated as individuals and are encouraged to grow in a supportive environment that values diversity. In this intimate setting, children from all backgrounds learn to live cooperatively, and make close and lasting friendships.
