There are three primary ways to make gifts to Camp Arcadia. You may give to the Annual Campaign, the Spirit of Arcadia Campaign or make a gift to the Arcadia Foundation.
The Annual Campaign:
The 2020 Annual Campaign Goal is $450,000
Currently we have around $300,000 in gifts. Our year-end goal is to raise $150,000 more to pay for the dewatering system that is preventing Camp’s buildings from flooding.
Camp Arcadia relies on your gifts to the Annual Campaign to fund financial scholarships, make improvements to our program and grounds, hire outstanding staff and continue to provide a life-changing experience for our guests. This year it will also help offset the cost of the new dewatering system to prevent flooding of Camp’s buildings. The difference in registration revenue and the total cost to operate our much-loved programs is covered by your gifts. As a result, your donations help keep your registration rates affordable and allow Camp’s ministry to continue to thrive.
You may have donations automatically deducted from either your banking account or credit card. Sustaining donations to Camp Arcadia are particularly helpful and are an easy way to support this ministry. To become a monthly donor, simply print and mail a Camp Arcadia Donor Form or call the camp office at (231) 889-4361.
Members of Thrivent Financial can help Camp Arcadia even more by using Thrivent Choice®, a program that lets you recommend where some of Thrivent Financial’s charitable outreach funds go. Please direct your Choice Dollars® to Camp Arcadia. Thrivent members need to periodically designate which organizations receive Choice dollars. Get all the details by clicking here.
The Spirit of Arcadia Campaign:
As the world gets more hectic, Camp Arcadia’s mission to foster the renewal of the whole person — mind, body and spirit — is needed more than ever.
As we work to ensure the experience of Camp Arcadia is guaranteed for generations to come, we have built the Spirit of Arcadia: Building the Future Campaign. This campaign will help us reach our goals and set a strong foundation for the future of camp.
The Foundation receives planned gifts, invests them, and then uses the income for projects to help guarantee the long-term stability and growth of Camp through program enrichment, capital improvements, and financial scholarships. Those that include Camp Arcadia in their planned giving become members of our giving society, Camp Arcadia Legacy Builders. Learn more.
