Adam’s Camp Advocates

Have you ever thought, “I really like Adam’s Camp and would like to find a way to help out but I’m not sure I can volunteer for a whole week?”
You’re not the only one.  And there are so many ways to lend a hand.  That’s why we’ve created,

Who: Whole families, young (or not so young) professionals, retirees, anybody who would like to lend their skills and hands to support the children, youth and families of Adam’s Camp.

What: Be part of a group of individuals and families who all want to support Adam’s Camp, using your strengths for our campers.  Project areas include awareness, program support and fund-raising.  We have a number of options or you can come up with your own.

When: You give your time when it works for you.   We don’t have regular meetings, although some groups working on a project together may choose to meet.  Communication will handled as needed and in the manner that works best for you, such as email, texts, etc.

We had a terrific kick-off event on Sunday, January 27th at Celebrity Lanes where about 50 new Adam’s Camp Advocates had a chance to learn more about it, meet with one another, choose their project or area of interest and bowl in our own private party room!

Already in the inaugural year, Adam’s Camp Advocates are having a big impact!  We’ve had:

  • a pre-camp gathering for families all attending the same week of therapy camp, Thank you Great Play!

  • great support from Arapahoe High School during Warrior Week

  • a fund-raising house party

  • ticket sellers for events

  • a great “spread the word” awareness focus

  • 2 different fund-raising events held on behalf of Adam’s Camp

As a result, Adam’s Camp now has new volunteers, improved awareness, new campers and additional funds to support all of our programs.  Well done, Advocates!
