Camp Whitewood needs our help!

4-H Camp Whitewood needs our help!

We are so thankful for the support our community has shown so far and are still looking for support to help us meet our goal. Any contribution made helps support camp this summer.


This week we are asking for families to share their favorite camp song. We hope you will too! Be creative, post a video of you or your camper singing their favorite song. How many friends, campers or counselors can you get together virtually to share camp songs?

Share a song on Camp’s Facebook!

Camp Whitewood



Our goal of $30,000 for this fundraiser and exactly 21 days left for the campaign. WE CAN DO IT! We can only reach this goal with the help of all of YOU. We recognize that $30,000 will surely not make up for our losses, but we need to do everything we can to make sure our camp is still here for 2021 and beyond.
