Camp for Kids

This summer, with our Camp for Kids campaign, you can camp with a purpose while having fun on your outdoor adventures! Are you planning a camping trip into the mountains? An overnight river trip? Maybe you’re sleeping out under the stars in the backyard? However your adventure looks, become a Camp for Kids Ambassador – a Campbassador – and help support La Plata County youth this summer.

How It Works

Step 1: Plan a summer outdoor adventure for you and your friends or family between July 1 and September 30

Step 2: Join our Camp for Kids Campaign by signing-up as a Campbassador ($25) and pledge to raise a minimum of $100 for the Boys & Girls Club of La Plata County from friends and family. The sky’s the limit, more pledges = more support for kids. Each Campbassador will receive a Camp for Kids campbag with “camping essentials.”

Step 3: Share your Camp for Kids message via e-mail, Facebook, Instagram or wherever you connect with your network and ask them to sponsor your adventure to invest in La Plata County kids. *We will provide you with message tips and a custom image to help spread the word.

Step 4: Camp with a purpose. Have FUN in the outdoors this summer and help Build Great Futures for our community youth!

“Campbassador” Gear

Once your registered, you’ll receive a Campbag with swag including s’mores, a camp light and more.  You’ll receive social media images and ideas for posts to help you share your message before your trip, while you’re out (if you have access) and after your camping fun, to help you encourage donations and recruit more participants (anyone, anywhere can Camp for Kids).

Raise More, Win More, Do More
  • Challenge your friends to join the fun and see who raises the most money!  All campers will be entered in prize drawings upon raising $100 / $250 / $500 in support of the Boys & Girls Club. 
  • Camping multiple times throughout the summer?  Donations made in support of each outing will be totaled to increase your prize level possibilities! 
  • The Club will keep you posted on your fundraising total and the names of your Camp sponsors as you work toward your Camp for Kids goal. 
  • Individual donations of $250 or more may be eligible for a Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit, equal to 50% of the total donation.  Win, win!
