Summer Camp – Get Involved

There are three 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. 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 $740 per child). Please help us keep the cost low for the parents and continue running a quality summer camp.

3. Donate or Purchase Items - Have extra supplies laying around that we could put to good use?  Could you purchase an item and send it to us as a tax-deductible donation?
