Can You Help Sustain Camp?

Camp Hochelaga recognizes that, at this time, the safety and health of our community is paramount. In response to COVID-19, we have suspended camp sessions and programs for the 2020 season. As we navigate these unprecedented circumstances, we need your help to keep Camp strong until we can all be together again for summer 2021.

Your Contribution Will Help with Essential Expenses Only

We recognize that families and communities are experiencing new and additional financial hardships right now. Please only make a contribution to sustain Camp Hochelaga if you are in a financial position to do so. Here at Hochelaga we are doing everything we can to streamline our overhead expenses and ensure that all funds are used solely for the essential expenses that will allow Camp to open to our community again for summer 2021 and years to come. Please reach out with any questions about the use of your donation.

Updated June 6, 2020: at this time, as YWCA Vermont Camp Hochelaga navigates the suspension of our 2020 camp season in response to COVID-19, we ask you to consider making a contribution to help sustain Camp through this challenging period. Camp Hochelaga's Staff and Board of Directors are working hard to streamline operating costs and overhead expenses such that the organization's limited resources are put towards expenses that are essential to our ability to open our front gate for a strong 2021 season.

To learn more about how your contribution would help keep our lights on and our team in place, or what Camp Hochelaga's essential expenses include, please reach out! Give us a call (802) 862-7520, or email contactus@ywcavt.org.

 

 

CAMP HOCHELAGA STRIVES TO GIVE 100 SCHOLARSHIPS TO AT-RISK YOUTH IN OUR COMMUNITY EACH SUMMER 

Your gift today to the Circle of Girls scholarship fund will make reaching this goal possible. With the support of generous donors like you, we can raise the $40,000.00 needed to offer 100 youth in our community the opportunity to have empowering, strength-building camp experiences during 2021. Help complete the circle with your gift today!

At Camp Hochelaga we believe that each and every person has a light to share with others. We all share our light in different ways. Hochelaga campers share their light by supporting friends through challenges. Our counselors share their light by teaching new skills with patience and positivity, by leading with kindness, and by ensuring that all Hochelaga campers see their own inner strengths.

We are here to ask you to share your light by making the magic of Camp Hochelaga possible for youth in need from our community.
