Camp Gorton Support

Camp Gorton, like all camps, needs a lot of love and support to keep it operational and expand program offerings. The Friends of Camp Gorton, LTD (FOCG) is a domestic not-for-profit corporation created to provide financial and personnel resources to Camp Gorton, to maintain high-quality facilities, to benefit the community, youth, and families who attend camp, and to enhance the camp’s capabilities and offerings. The FOCG plans and delivers volunteer projects such as Beaver Days and capital improvements each year. See below for examples of projects and sponsors.

If you want to support Camp Gorton as a volunteer, donor, or corporate partner, contact Kurt Groeger or Brad Bodoh.
