Donate to Camp Billings

December 2017

Dear camp family,

This past summer was Billings’ 111th year of operation, and once again we successfully lived by our core belief that a camp experience should be both transformative andaffordable. 

Yet again, we provided a wide range of rich and meaningful experiences to this summer’s campers. While offering session-specific programming–such as our annual Glee singing competition, International Night, and Country Fair—we continued to offer high quality, daily programming including our sailing program which featured new sailboats purchased by your generous support as well as our crafts program that offered pottery for the very first time.

This summer also marked a critical milestone for camp with the announcement of Bob Green’s transition as Director and the hiring of Anne Hartman Collins and Sean Collins as Co-Directors. Bob will lead camp next summer with Anne and Sean serving as Co-Directors-In-Training to ensure a seamless transition. Anne and Sean will transition fully into their Co-Director roles in the summer of 2019. We are deeply grateful for Bob’s steady and effective leadership during his tenure and are thrilled that Anne and Sean will lead us through the next phase of camp’s evolution.

With strong leadership in place to continue guiding Billings, we would like to ensure that camp remains in an equally strong financial position. In particular, we hope to be able to continue investing in ongoing capital improvements while also covering the annual expenses we incur to operate camp. As a sign of our collective commitment to raising the funds necessary to continue making improvements to camp, every board member has once again committed to making a financial contribution this year.

We deeply appreciate the financial support that many of you have provided to us in the past, and we hope that even more of you will choose to support us this year. Each and every donation counts regardless of its dollar amount. In fact, especially for those of you who have never donated before, we ask that you consider a modest, initial donation of $20 which will allow us to purchase a range of camp supplies whether it be a soccer ball, a set of song books, or materials to make tie dye t-shirts.

Please consider making a financial contribution to camp by making an online donation through link below.

On behalf of our current and future campers, families, and staff, thank you for your continued commitment to camp.

Have a wonderful holiday season!
