Camp Avoda Sustainability Initiative

In response to COVID-19 challenges and to secure Camp Avoda’s future, we need your support. In this uncertain time, the camp leadership and board of directors has outlined plans both logistically and financially to ensure Camp Avoda’s sustainability and longevity. Please join us!

Thank you to JCamp 180 and Harold Grinspoon for his generous and inspirational All Together Now Grant that has helped so many camps and of course Camp Avoda!

Thank you to those who have contributed during this challenging time.


Annual Fund

The Camp Avoda Annual Fund supports general annual operations. A general gift supports the enhancement of current programs, the development of new activities, staff training, and one of the many needs that go into operating camp.


Alumni Scholarship Fund

The Camp Avoda Alumni Scholarship Fund, established after 1987, is supported by Camp Avoda alumni to help provide support to dozens of boys each summer who, without such needs-based support, would otherwise be unable to attend camp.


Capital Campaign

While our facilities are strong and vital even today, in order to meet the demands of today’s camper families, a master site facilities plan has been developed and executed, and a capital campaign is underway. We seek major and lead gift funders, and solicit input and guidance to shape the campaign and maintain our physical campus. Projects include: Bunk renovation, sports facilities, camp entry gateway and parking area redesign, Donor Recognition Lakeview Park, waterfront swim docks, and more!


Tribute/Memorial Gifts

You may choose to make a tribute or a memorial gift in honor or in memory of someone or to recognize a special occasion. While you will receive an appropriate acknowledgment of your gift, the person(s) whom you honor or in whose memory you donate will receive a personalized note card noting the occasion and that a gift has been made by you in their honor or memory.
