Opportunities to Give:
Camp at the Eastward [CATE] provides programs and opportunities for youth and adults throughout the year thanks to the contributions of individuals and organizations like you. Many of the youth who come to participate in summer camp are from low- income families in the Franklin and Somerset County areas, some of the poorest communities in the state. For many of our campers CATE is their first or only experience of a church/faith connection.
Although costs for supplies and services continue to increase, our goal is to accept ALL youth who want to come regardless of the ability to pay. Through prayerful consideration of our role as missionaries in this community, the CATE Leadership Team has chosen to drastically reduce the tuition, even though the actual cost per camper is $300/week. the We are calling on the talents of those who serve and are served at camp, on fundraising efforts and mission partnerships to strengthen the life of Camp at the Eastward.
We ask for your prayers and support, which can take several forms:
* Adopt a counselor @$150/wk or $600/season
* Camper Scholarship @ $225 per camper
* Sponsor a child Walk-a-thon @ $5-$100
* Resource books and games ($20 -$200)
* Replace Challenge/Ropes Course equipment ($30 - $90 each of 18 items)
At Camp at the Eastward, we value your time and talents. Volunteers are our greatest assets. You, too, can enrich CATE offerings and programs:
* Join one of our six subcommittees of the CATE Management Team::
- Summer Camp Programming & Administration
- Facilities & Maintenance
- Special Events
- Marketing & Fundraising
- Budget & Finance
* Adventure Challenge Course & Recreation
* Offer your talents as a special program volunteer or counselor
* Organize or participate in the Challenge/ Ropes course, a retreat, or another special event at Camp at the Eastward.
* Organize a Fundraiser in support of CATE programs or projects
