The success of Camp New Dawn depends on a group of caring and compassionate adults who volunteer as buddies. Each camper is paired with an adult buddy for the weekend. Applicants must be 21 years of age or older. New buddies must complete a three-hour training program, and all buddies participate in a four-hour training program prior to the start of camp.
Compass relies on donations for 90% of Camp expenses, which has allowed us to serve over 800 children regardless of their ability pay. We think it’s important that every child who could benefit from the experience can attend. It’s a huge endeavor, and one that our staff and volunteers take on proudly to ensure this resource is here for our communities’ youth. Monetary, in-kind, or sponsorship opportunities are available and welcomed! For more information about how to make a donation, contact Kenda Leager, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 443-262-4106.
