Camp Seafarer Annual Fund 2011

Thank You for Camp from Camp Sea Gull Camp Seafarer on Vimeo.


What happy news about my beloved Camp - if you or someone you know gave to Camp Seafarer and Camp Sea Gull's Annual Fund this past year, thank you! This Annual Fund is one of several non-profit organizations I volunteer for. Camp Seafarer changed my life and I owe them any free time I have!

The Annual Fund addresses:
Camperships
Provide direct financial assistance for overnight, day and family campers. Our commitment to providing camperships helps us to shape a well-rounded Camp community and teaches children of all backgrounds how to share their differences, encourage each other and have great fun.

Pamlico County Outreach
YMCA programs in Pamlico County subsidized by the Camp Annual Fund are Y Learning, Youth & Government and Day Camp. Our commitment to the our community equips children of Pamlico County to learn, grow and succeed.

The General Fund
Our General Fund provides unrestricted funding to improve our programs and facilities identified by the executive directors as Camp Sea Gull & Camp Seafarer's greatest needs.

If you did not know that Camp has a yearly fundraiser separate from the YMCA operations - please know they would be happy to get your donation to help with facilities, Pamlico County local children, and creating memories for thousands of children.

  2. It is SUCH a worthy cause. Gone are the days of exclusivity in summer camps. I am so glad that in recent years the annual fund has opened the doors to lower-income and middle class families - both trying to bridge the gap between summer fun for children and making ends meet at home!

  3. I just finished writing an essay about the benefits of summer camp and about the impact my camp, Camp Thunderbird has had on me. I know many friends who have gone/go to Camp Seagull/Seafarer and they love it! If I wasn't a T-Bird gal, I would be there! XO
