Be A Part of Camp Nathanael's Future

We strive to keep our camper fees low.  Part of Camp Nathanael’s operating expenses and all of our capital expenses are covered by donations.

Giving to our General Fund helps us cover the cost of Camp operations and and maintenance and also develop new program elements and buildings as part of the Camp Nathanael 20 Year Master Plan.

Master Plan Overview: Phase 1 Capital Campaign

In 2017 the Camp Nathanael Board of Directors developed a 20-year Master Plan to help us plan and prioritize how to best maintain the facilities that we have and to develop new programs & replace ageing buildings. Phase 1 includes expanding and upgrading the dining hall, improving the waterfront, building a new maintenance facility away from the center of camp, improving staff housing and developing a high ropes course and BMX biking track. Some of these elements may change if more urgent needs arise.  

Estimated total cost: $250,000
