2020: The Year of GRIT

In a year like no other, our donors and supporters went above and beyond to support our mission and creating world-class camp properties including:

  • Virtual camp programs for thousands of youths
  • Family camping opportunities
  • 47 flushing outhouses
  • 30 hand-wash stations
  • 6 shower houses
  • Replacing 100+ new mini-adirondacks that were destroyed by wildfires

 

2021 Camp4All Campaign: Your Step-By-Step Guide

Step 1: Have a conversation with your District Team about Camp4All

Work with your District Executive or designated Camp4All District leadership to set a goal and map out your unit’s campaign. Your District Executive will have information regarding your unit’s giving history as well as resources and tips to ensure your unit’s success.

Step 2: Promote Camp4all 4 weeks out from your presentation date

Parents in your unit may not be familiar with the purpose of the Camp4All campaign. Share the “Camp4All Flyer” with your parents and the date of your Camp4All presentation. 

Step 3: Ask previous unit donors to support your unit’s goals

Your District Executive will provide you with a list of donors that have given to your unit in the past. Use the templated email samples in your digital resource webpage to invite previous supporters to donate again to local Scouting. Please note that some donors may have only provided a phone number.

Hello!   

My name is <unit coordinator name> and I am the Camp4All coordinator for our Scout unit, <insert unit number>. I’m reaching out to you today because you are a past member of our group. You’ll be glad to know that our group is doing well – we have great plans to keep safely Scouting this year, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Camp4All is the Cascade Pacific Council’s philanthropic campaign which collects donations that are 100% restricted to support camping and camp property-related expenses. Different than the formerly executed, “Friends of Scouting” fundraiser – 100% of these proceeds directly support our camping programs and properties, which is quite exciting. You can read more about Camp4All here: https://cpcbsa.org/donate/camp4all/    

Thanks to participation of many of our unit’s families – we are so close to achieving our goal! If you are willing and able, please consider donating online to support our unit’s efforts: <insert unit giving link>.   

If you are unable to donate (completely understandable given the current economic climate) – please consider sharing this post on your own social media page, or sharing our unit giving link with a few friends or family members. The more that we can share this campaign, the greater our camping properties will be for generations to come.   

Thank you all for your support of our unit and of our amazing CPC camps!   

Best regards,  

 <unit coordinator name> 

Step 4: Engage Scouting Families

Scouting families can help the unit achieve its goal. How? Recruit families from your unit to tap into their network to help achieve the goal by sharing the email below. Our Camp4All digital platform allows you to streamline and simplify your efforts to fundraise via text, email, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networking sites – by simply sharing your unit-specific Camp4All link & a personal story. Your unit fundraising page can also send pre-templated communications to your contacts.

Hello Unit, <insert unit number> parents!  

I am the representative for our unit’s Camp4All campaign this year. As you may know, Camp4All is the Cascade Pacific Council’s philanthropic campaign which collects donations that are 100% restricted to support camping and camp property-related expenses. Different than the formerly executed, “Friends of Scouting” fundraiser – 100% of these proceeds directly support our camping programs and properties, which is quite exciting. You can read more about Camp4All here: https://cpcbsa.org/donate/camp4all/ 

I personally support Camp4All because of its massive impact on local youth and local programming. Since it’s conception in 2020, the Camp4All philanthropic campaign has supported the construction of 47 flushing outhouses at our camps, the repair of Butte Creek Scout Ranch (which was badly damaged by the recent wildfires), and ensured that our local camps were “COVID Safe” for usage by over 450 families during the summer of 2020.  

You will be hearing a little more about Camp4All over the next few weeks as we move through our campaign. If you are inclined to donate now, please visit our unit-specific giving page here: <insert unit giving link>A donation of amount is meaningful! 

Thank you all for your support of this this campaign, our local Scouts, and of our amazing CPC camps!  

Best regards,
