Thank You 2022 Donors!
The support of our generous community has truly been the backbone of everything we do at Jacobs Camp.
In 2022, we saw record enrollment numbers with over 525 campers attending one of our sessions, and we are on track for similar enrollment numbers in 2023! These high enrollment numbers bring a greater need for scholarship assistance. Through your support, we were able to fully meet all scholarship requests for Summer 2022 – awarding over $150,000 in financial assistance. We truly believe that financial constraints should never stand in the way of a camper attending Jacobs Camp!
This past year also brought the return of in-person visits throughout our region. Our team was thrilled to get back on the road to visit families in New Orleans, Little Rock, Memphis, Birmingham, Baton Rouge, and Nashville. We love bringing Jacobs Magic to our families all year long, and our generous supporters help make the visits possible. We look forward to visiting your city in 2023!
Your support also made it possible to provide the needed resources for our staff as they navigated a quickly changing environment during Summer 2022. Our amazing counselors and staff give their all to facilitate learning, personal growth, friendships, and so much more. We are grateful for the ability to support their mental and emotional health needs leaving them more space to focus on building an amazing experience for our campers.
Your generosity has set the stage for another transformative Summer of welcoming new community members, making new friends, building lifelong connections and, of course, having TONS of fun! Thank you!
