Capital Campaign for Camp Hi-Rock

The Campaign for Camp Hi-Rock is a capital campaign which seeks to raise $2.8 million to address critical capital needs at camp.  Our breathtaking natural setting is one of our most valuable resources.  It is the primary vehicle for the transformational experiences that take place at Hi-Rock.  The Campaign for Hi-Rock will build the infrastructure necessary to complement our extraordinary setting and will facilitate the vital work being accomplished by the members of the Hi-Rock community at camp.

The capital projects being undertaken by this campaign include the following:

  • Rebuild Parker Seeley Lodge
  • Rebuild cabins
  • Resurface ball fields
  • Rebuild shower houses
  • Renovate staff housing including the Wheel House
  • Rebuild dining hall hill retaining walls (done!)
  • Strengthen our foundation by reducing our debt burden

As we have  been making our way along the capital campaign trail, we have been encouraged and inspired by the love for Camp Hi-Rock we’ve seen among the friends we have visited and the volunteers who have joined us in telling the Hi-Rock story.  We’ve had a great time sharing the opportunity to revitalize camp with alumni, camper parents, community organizations and foundations, and other friends of camp.  Our generous community has pledged $1,311,442 in support of the campaign so far.  Hi-Rockers of all ages, from the littlest Chipmunks in day camp on up, are beginning to cheer in anticipation of the reopening of Parker Seeley Lodge!

 Annual Campaign

The Annual Campaign subsidizes our youth camp programs and supports our Campership Program which makes it possible for campers to attend camp who would not otherwise be able to do so due to financial challenges faced by their families.  In 2014 we raised over $125,000 with gifts from more than 600 individuals, organizations and foundations!  We are grateful to be part of such a generous camp community where alumni, parents, staff, community organizations and other friends of camp come together to make it possible for all campers to grow, learn and play together. Our 2016 Annual Campaign kicked off in February and seeks to raise $125,000 by April 30th.  It is not too early to make a gift or a pledge to the 2016 campaign.  Click here to find out more about how to do so.
