Over 60% of the children attending Camp Olmsted receive some level of financial assistance. Our camp fee is $435 per camper per session, while our actual costs are over $1,100 per child. Even with this highly subsidized fee, it is still far above the means of many of the families we serve. Donations help Five Points Mission provide the necessary financial assistance (in the form of full and partial scholarships) and program support to ensure “Camp Olmsted” provides the summer of a lifetime. Consider the many ways your donation can make a difference at Olmsted -
A donation of $500 provides a new computer for our Creative Center;
A donation of $435 provides a full scholarship to a child in need;
A donation of $165 provides a full scholarship for a week of day camp;
A donation of $100 provides a session worth of supplies for a group of campers;
A donation of $50 provides a care package of necessities to a camper who doesn't have sheets, soap, toothpaste, or socks.
The retreat program at Olmsted serves an average of 1,200 – 1,400 persons per year. Our retreat participants include church groups, youth groups, not for profit organizations, fraternal groups and shared interest groups that use our facilities for special activities. With consistent use by such a diverse range of participants, our facilities are in constant need of repair and maintenance. Your donation can help defray some of these costs and help us keep our facilities in top shape.
