Contribute to Camp O!
Camp Okawehna staff consists entirely of volunteers who donate their time, energy, and creativity. One hundred dedicated volunteers participate in our camp each year. Many return again and again. They help with food service, arts and crafts, recreational leadership, one-on-one assistance, and help provide an overall fun atmosphere.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life. They range in age from 18 to 80 and include doctors, nurses, social workers, teachers, business executives, firefighters, pilots, and college students.
Camp Okawehna relies on voluntary donations and fundraising to provide our programs free of charge. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and all donations are tax deductible.
The cost for one child to attend camp is $65 (excluding travel expenses). While some children may be able to afford this, others may not. We welcome any donation that will help a child attend camp.
We would be appreciative of any solicitation to your local organizations on the Camp’s behalf for financial support. Kidney Foundations and medical groups are a great place to start.
Support the Facility
The camp’s physical needs are considerable. While Camp Okawehna has been at the Cedar Crest campground, we have constructed a welcome shelter, a permanent shelter used for dialysis, and have refurbished bath houses and the crafts shelter. We are in the process of assessing our ability to build a permanent outside stage and amphitheater for use all year long.
