Send a Kid to Camp with a Campership Pie!

Buying a Campership Pie for $420 is the most delicious way to help send a child to Camp. A camper gets a week at the best place in the Adirondacks, and you get a pie of your choice delivered by the date you request.

Fill out this order form and either mail to Beaver Camp (8884 Buck Point Road) or bring to the auction on June 10-11 and leave at the cashier's booth.  We will also have forms at the auction. You may choose to use $405 as a tax deductible gift (subtract $15 for the pie value). Helping out has never been more sweet.e

Auction 1

All proceeds benefit Beaver Camp by providing important support for our children’s camp program, offsetting the true cost of summer camp. In 2019, the actual cost per resident camper was $509, yet the average fee charged was well under $400. This annual fundraiser is what helps cover the difference.

For more information, call the Beaver Camp office at (315) 376-2640 or email Mike Judd at mike@beavercamp.org.
