Gift a child a life changing experience - Sponsor a Camper! While the true cost of camp per child is about $500, most of our families pay only $40 for their children to attend camp. Our commitment to making summer camp accessible to all families means that our unique sliding fee scale considers each family’s size and income level to determine their fees. Camp Blodgett remains the most affordable summer camp in West Michigan. By providing a Campership, you cover the costs of staffing, programming, facility expenses, and more for a child’s summer camp experience.
Join us in providing the youth of West Michigan with enriching and accessible summer camp experiences and cost-free, year-round programs at Camp Blodgett. Sponsorships play a vital role in our ability to do our work.
Investing in Camp Blodgett’s Campership Campaign can reinforce your company’s brand in all the communities of Kent and Ottawa Counties for the entire year.
