We are grateful to all of the volunteers and donors who understand have so generously given to Camp Chandler over the years. Camp Chandler has grown and thrived due to their vision. Sustaining and improving Camp for future generations is vital. A capital initiative does more than build new cabins, renovate dining halls and build program facilities.
Thanks to philanthropic and institutional support in recent years, we have been able to accomplish more than $3,000,000 in improvements. Enhancing facilities without relying on fees stretches every campership and outreach gift and makes Camp accessible for more children and families while improving programs.
