There are four simple ways to get involved with our camp, Summer Spectacular:
1. Summer Internship - College students have the opportunity to spend 10 weeks this summer loving and serving Clarkston families through Summer Spectacular.

2. Volunteer – Tutor elementary or middle school students, provide a field trip, help us fundraise, chaperone a Friday Funday activity, coordinate crafts or games, and other small projects as needed.

3. Help Us Cover the Cost - Because many refugee families in our community have low incomes, we only charge parents $40 to send their child to our camp for the entire summer. However, the expense to Friends of Refugees is much greater than $40 (about $400 per child). Please help us keep the cost low for the parents and continue running a quality summer camp.
