“Thank you so much for providing our daughter with such a wonderful camp experience this summer. This was her first time being away from home. We heard great things about her counselor and all of the staff. She enjoyed her horseback riding lessons the most, and said the food was GREAT! Thank you again for providing this opportunity for her. We appreciated it so very much.”Letter sent to camp by the parents of Deanna, 2008 Scholarship recipient
For families interested in possibly receiving scholarships, all requests for scholarships must be made by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Full scholarships are often not available as we try to help as many kids as possible join camp. Income verification is required.
The Genesee Retreat (tax id # 94-3230114) is a local Indian Valley non-profit foundation organized to help deserving Plumas County children with recreational, educational and health services. We have always believed in giving back to our own community and have directed the money donated to the Genesee Retreat to go to these children (100% of all donations go to the children).
The ACA Camp Scholarship Program funds will go to applicants who are selected from outside of Plumas County. Many of these children are part of our National Guard “Operation Purple” Program. We have hosted children of active service men and women at camp for several years now and will continue to do so with your generous help (ACA retains a 7.5% administrative fee).
If you choose to print the form and mail a check, please make the check payable to either the Genesee Retreat or the ACA Camper Scholarship Program and memo “Coppercreek Camp”. We will forward your check to the appropriate foundation and send a receipt with their tax id number.
