It costs us $3000-$4000 to run a two-night, three-day retreat for approximately 50 people. Readers can consider making a tax-deductible donation to Camp Ferguson, help organize a fundraising event, or let others know what we're doing and encourage them to help.
JB: Got it. Any readers out there who like to make end of year contributions that will make a difference? Here you go! Anything you'd like to add before we wrap this up, Dan?
DG: We have really enjoyed putting together this Camp Ferguson project. We been able to meet so many wonderful kids, parents, and educators and have been overwhelmed by the financial and staffing support we've received.
We are working with the American Camp Association as our fiscal agent and we'd certainly appreciate it if people would consider a tax deductible donation to Camp Ferguson. Checks can be made to "American Camp Association" with "Camp Manitowa-Camp Ferguson" in the subject line. Mail to: Camp Manitowa, PO Box 16613, Clayton, MO 63105.
Online donations can be made through this link: https://www.formstack.com/forms/?1107541-khUxP4aEdr= - Include Camp Manitowa in the "camp name" box and Camp Ferguson in the "special event donation" box.
JB: It's been a pleasure talking with you about #CampFeguson, Dan. Good luck with this great idea!
