We’re stronger together.

It’s rare for any of us to travel very far without running into a former camper, or parents of campers — and the thrill of these random encounters never wears off. We are very fortunate to have a strong alumni community whose engagement is so crucial to our success and, as the song goes, make sure that Camp Fitch is Forever. We welcome and encourage you to reconnect with Fitch and strengthen your bond in some of these ways:

Come Visit!

We love to show off how we’ve grown since you’ve been gone!

We’re passionate about the Fitch for All Initiative — a fund to provide fee relief for hundreds of kids each year who really need a Fitch experience but whose families can’t afford the fees. We’re grateful for your help: $100 provides for one day of summer camp or an entire outdoor education experience for a deserving child, $650 provides a whole week for a deserving child.  Fill an entire cabent with a donation of $4500! All funds go directly to kids, and the gift of camp can transform a life forever.

Do you know a child who would enjoy a week at our Great Camp on a Great Lake? Let us know who and we’ll send a personal note to start the conversation — and we promise to keep it low pressure and not call during dinner.

Volunteer opportunities abound at Camp Fitch for high-school students, alumni and people driven to share their talents and skills.  Join us to become a deeper part of the Camp Fitch family and help provide great experiences to our campers.

Campaign to make Fitch for All!

The Fitch for All Initiative is a volunteer-led campaign of vital importance to our mission.  From the Polar Bear plunger to a quiet campaigner, there are many ways to get involved. Please consider volunteering your time and social network to help us meet our goal.

Sponsor a Camper

We have several churches and other civic groups who identify worthy kids in their community and come together to provide the fee for a week of summer camp, provide transportation (often one of the biggest challenges families face is to physically get their child to camp), and other incidentals needed for a week in the woods and in the water.  Please let us know if this is something you or your community is planning to do — we’d like to help!
