As part of #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving on Dec. 2nd, here are five ways that you can help Camp Blue Skies celebrate our fifth year of camps for adults with developmental disabilities:
1. Give us a #High5for5 donation on #GivingTuesday
Here’s how your #GivingTuesday donation in honor of our 5th anniversary could help our campers:
$5 = Arts/crafts supplies for a camper
$10 = 5 water bottles for campers
$25 = Props and background for photo booth
$50 = One healthy eating class for 13 campers.
$100 = One “Get out of your seat and dance” drumming class.
2. Volunteer for camp
Sign up for a session of camp… for all five days, for a few days or for one day! Our incredible volunteers provide support and encouragement to adults with developmental disabilities. Opportunities range from cabin counselor to health services to program assistance to taking photos to being an extra set of hands!
- Georgia at Camp Twin Lakes: March 15-20
- Ohio at Recreation Unlimited: early September
- North Carolina at YMCA Camp Harrison: two weeks in early October

With four weeks of camp in three states, Camp Blue Skies Foundation needs assistance with different tasks year-round. These tasks range from envelope stuffing to supply inventory to database management.

4. Make your shopping on Amazon.com do some good
Through the AmazonSmile Foundation program, Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to Camp Blue Skies.
