Make a Donation

Since first opening our gates 65 years ago, tens of thousands of young people have called Shwayder Camp their summer home. None of this would have been possible without the support of individuals like you. We welcome donations of any size.

Scholarship Fund

Shwayder Camp provides more than $40,000 in scholarships each year. Approximately 10% of families need financial assistance to be able to attend camp.  Your gift will give more children will have an opportunity to attend Shwayder Camp and truly have “A Summer To Build Your Life On.”

General Fund

Please help to provide a meaningful summer experience for future campers by donating a general camp gift.  It helps Shwayder Camp in so many ways.  At almost 500 campers per summer, our operations costs can be extraordinary. 

Capital Fund

A gift to the Shwayder Camp Capital Campaign will allow us to do ongoing improvements to our existing structures to ensure continued camper safety and program effectiveness. It will also allow us to look toward the future of the camp with an eye toward facility improvement and replacement to enrich our scope of service.

Life & Legacy

Through the inclusion of Shwayder Camp in the estate planning of its supporters, the long-term success of camp’s mission will be achieved for generations to come.
