How Your Funding Helps Wonderland Camp
Wonderland Camp’s 2019 operating budget will be more than $1,000,000. This money covers our professional and summer staff salaries, all our utilities, insurance, boats, activities, facilities maintenance, and other necessary costs.
Every year we serve approximately 1,000 campers. If we divided the $1,000,000 among them, we would need to charge them about $1,000 per week.
- But our campers can’t afford $1,000 a week.
- So we charge them only $675.
- $675 x 1,000 campers gets us to $675,000 in revenue from camper fees.
- But we need $1,000,000 to operate camp.
- $1,000,000 minus $675,000 leaves a gap of $325,000, or $325 per camper.
- That means we must rely on donors like you to bridge the $325 gap.
We gratefully recruit and welcome bridge-the-gap cash donations every year from many individual and business donors in any amount. We accumulate every dollar to make up for all those $325 gaps of scholarship. Please click Donate Now to help out.
