it takes a village.
The phrase "it takes a village to raise a child" couldn't apply more to Camp Fowler. We have a huge tribe of people who are willing to invest their time, energy, and money into our little corner of the world so that children everywhere can experience camp. After 63 years of operation, the Fowler Family has grown to thousands of people. Each of those people have been impacted by a staff member, a volunteer, or a charitable donation, and many of them go on to make contributions of their own.
Each summer, 30 young adults choose to give up their entire summer to help children experience Camp Fowler by serving as part of our summer staff. These staff come from New York, Connecticut, Michigan, Colorado, Uruguay, and beyond.
Each summer, 200 adults choose to give up a week (or multiple weeks) of their time to volunteer: as cabin counselors, kitchen helpers, and maintenance assistants.
Each summer, 30 high school students give up two weeks of their summer to serve Camp Fowler as a SWiM (Student Working in Ministry) by being role models for young campers and by providing support for summer staff.
Each year, hundreds of individuals make charitable donations that help kids everywhere to come to camp.

We wouldn’t exist without the generous financial support of our Fowler Family. In fact, voluntary contributions account for about 30% of our budget. Will you join us in helping ensure that children everywhere can continue experiencing Camp?
