Here are some possible ways you can raise some funds – either individually or with a group of kids who want to go to camp.
* Put out a change jar at church with a label stating what it is for
* Have a car wash after church
* Have a bake sale after church or in connection with a potluck or church
* Have a cookie dough sale (freezes great)
* Organize a raffle and ask merchants for donations
* Have a garage sale (lots of work but big bucks)
* “Hire a Teen” auction (church members bid in an auction for
having a teen work for them for 4-8 hours on a weekend)
* Wrap presents at the mall for donations (works best around big holidays)
* Sell boxes of fruit
* Search the Internet for 100s more ideas and products you could sell

money very easily)
One of the easiest ways of raising funds for summer camp is by sending a letter to your relatives and friends of the family. Below is a sample letter. Of course you will want to personalize your letter and write it from your heart. Include a stamped return envelope.
