Camp O Day was a Success!
We celebrated the very first Camp O Day a few weeks ago on June 28th. It was a day that commemorated the founding of Camp Ondessonk – the date that the first campers came through the Camp gate in 1959.
Throughout the day, there were emails and social media posts remembering the past 62 years of summer camp. Many of you shared stories and pictures, and we want to thank you for letting us enjoy your time at Camp Ondessonk! We are grateful to you for celebrating with us by liking and sharing our many posts!
In addition, you responded to a challenge given by a generous Camp friend who pledged $4,000 if we, a) raised $5,000 in cash; b) collected $5,000 in in-kind gifts, and c) received 200 pledged volunteer hours to be worked by the end of 2021.
Well, we couldn’t be happier! Here are the actual numbers…
$5,495.00 cash was raised;
more than $5,000 in-kind gifts were received;
578 volunteer hours were pledged by 15 volunteers.
As everyone always says, “There is magic at Camp Ondessonk!” We can’t agree more! Our Camp O Family is one of a kind. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the first Camp O Day a wonderful success!
