The #uKnight Campership Campaign

In 2011, Camp Stonewall was born from a big idea: overnight camp can make a difference in the life of every child. The audacious vision of the directors was that if camp is comfortable, flexible, and choice-focused, it could change the lives of families who had never experienced sleepaway camp before. This dream became a reality: the worldwide, resonant, remarkable community that CSW is today. 

2022 looks and feels different. Global challenges have meant that camp has evolved again and again - "making history" in a way only Knights know how. In the spirit of meeting the moment as CW does best, we are beginning a global effort to bring together the soul of our camp community during our eleventh year.

Accessing overnight camp has always been difficult for some families. In 2022, that truth meets another reality: kids need camp more than ever. For the social support, for the community warmth, for the confidence-building and self-discovery. We are launching the #uKnight11 campaign. This effort will raise campership dollars to bring the Camp Stonewall experience to as many new kids as we can this summer. While CSW enjoys the spirited, healthy competition of Color Wars annually, we are also blessed that no community can unite more effectively than this one. 

From now until June 11, 2022, we are encouraging donations in honor of summer number eleven. Staff, campers, parents, and friends of the program are welcomed to celebrate the 11-year milestone. Gifts can be made in many ways:

$11 -  Every bit helps! $11 from each of our amazing community members can go a long way to support new participants.  

$222 - A quarter-campership for a deserving child in 2022. These donors will be recognized with one of the summer's camper leadership awards being named in their honor.

$445 - A half-campership gets us 50% of the way to making CSW magic for a new camper! These donors will be recognized with one of the summer's camper leadership awards being named in their honor, as well as recognition at the 2022 closing flag ceremony.

$890 - A full one-week campership to help CSW come alive for a family who has never attended overnight camp before. This gift will be celebrated with a named camper leadership award, as well as with recognition at the 2022 closing flag ceremony.  

Naturally, gifts can be made in any denomination you can share. With your contribution, please note that we will be rewarding COLOR POINTS accordingly! This means the world to our current campers and staff.

With immense gratitude, 
The CSW Team
