Jacobs Camp Road to Welcome Home Campaign
At Camp, we are actively planning to bring the Jacobs Magic back to Utica for Summer 2021. While there are so many details to work out to ensure that our campers and staff have a healthy, safe, and successful summer, there is one thing that hasn't changed. Jacobs Camp has always been committed to providing financial assistance to families in order to ensure that finances never keep a child from coming to Camp. Thanks to your generous support of our Sustainability Campaign, we have a head start on our camper scholarship needs for 2021. But we know we will need much more.
During a normal year, Jacobs Camp awards $150,000 in scholarships to campers. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic crisis, we are estimating that camper families will need $250,000 for 2021. Additionally, we are estimating that the cost of extra precautions to operate safely next summer will cost about $50,000.
It will take your support to make sure all our campers are able to come together with our talented staff to create the Jacobs Magic once again. Your gift to our 2020 Road to Welcome Home Campaign is vital to the success of next summer. I hope you will join me making Summer 2021 our most special summer yet!
