Help send 24 children and youth to Nature Summer Camp!
Your contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 by Nancy Goodman in honor of Elizabeth Farnsworth: beloved Hitchcock Center board member, biologist, scientific illustrator, educator, musician, fern lover and Biothon leader extraordinaire.
Registration for camp opens in just a little over 2 months! The demand for scholarship last summer was nearly $9,000 and 14% of our campers received support from our Scholarship Fund.
Nature Summer Camp is an important gateway for children and youth, particularly girls, to get engaged with their inner scientist, to deepen their knowledge, and develop a greater appreciation for the balance of life all around us.
- With a gift of $127, you can be one of five donors who help send a teenager to a two-week Leadership Training Camp (total cost of a scholarship to this session is $635)
- With a gift of $295, you can send a Young Naturalist (ages 5-7) or an Eco-investigator (ages 7-9) to a 1-week session like Making & Tinkering Camp or Ew, That’s Gross!
- With a gift of $535, you can send a Nature Explorer (ages 9-11) to a 2-week session like Biologists in Training or Patterns in Nature
- With a gift of $1,000, you help us to achieve 1/5th of our matching challenge!
Your generosity today helps to ensure we’re developing the future Elizabeth Farnsworths of this world.
Thank you for giving budding young minds an opportunity to ignite their curiosity, expand their knowledge, and of course, have fun and play.
