More Camperships, Upgraded Facilities and Program Enhancements in 2013!

As a Pendalouan alum, parent, supporter, or staff member, you KNOW the impact that a Camp Pendalouan experience can have on a young person. It can change a child's life for the better in a unique way that school, church and other experiences cannot.

As we head into the remaining days of 2012, we are reflecting back on this past year's successes and looking forward toward 2013. We are focused on making 2013 the best year yet for Pendalouan. Among other things, that means more camperships, upgraded facilities, and program improvements.

You may have already heard about Pendalouan's Year-End Campaign. We've been busy this month writing letters, making calls, and sharing our stories to the Pendy community! This December, all donations received will go directly toward our Year-End Campaign, which supports camperships, facility improvements, and program enhancements.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of the year and we are slightly more than half way there!

Can you help us finish the year strong and go into 2013 stronger than ever? Please consider making a gift to our Year-End Campaign today.

Any size gift - small or large - will make a big difference and a REAL impact on our 2013 campers. However, we are giving out 2013 Pendalouan Calendars to the first 50 people who donate $75 or more!  These calendars include some of our favorite photos taken in the past year! There are still calendars left, so if you are interested in receiving one, donate today!
