Be a Reason Others Can Shine!

Camp Cole exists because of the generosity of individuals, families, businesses, and foundations who understand what the gift of a camp experience can mean to a child, teenager, or adult facing a serious illness or health challenge. When everyday can be a struggle, Camp Cole gives you a reason to smile. Help us, help them!

Shine On Capital Campaign – Phase 2

With Phase One just behind us, we’re jumping in to Phase Two with exciting plans for an art shack, gymnasium, ropes course, more outdoor adventure opportunities, and a host of Camp Cole directed programs and signature offerings.

If you’re interested in playing a role and would like to discuss a naming opportunity, our time is your time!

Camper Scholarships

It costs $850 for a camper to experience the magic of a week-long stay at Camp Cole. Many campers cannot afford this fee and miss out on fun and friendship, not to mention the chance to forget their troubles and do something normally amazing. At Camp Cole, campers get to ride a horse, sing campfire songs, catch a fish, paint a picture, and just be a kid!

With a $850 donation, you will provide a full Camper Scholarship and make a difference in the life of someone very deserving.

Go Cole Go! Annual Fund Club

Running Camp Cole is a big job that requires ongoing support for everyday camper needs, such as medical equipment, outdoor recreation equipment, arts and crafts supplies, maintenance, meals, and specialized programs. By joining the Go Cole Go Club, you are helping to make every day at Camp Cole a better day.

With a recurring monthly gift, you are joining a big-hearted group of caring and fun people. Starting in 2021, we’ll have special get-togethers for club members.

Therapeutic Riding Program

A signature Camp Cole experience, our Therapeutic Riding Program is a year around program that engages children and adults of all ages in riding, groundwork, and horsemanship. It introduces them to grooming, feeding, and general horse care skills, while teaching self-reliance, motivation, balance, adaptability, and more.

Your donation provides support and scholarships for year around riders and campers who benefit greatly from Therapeutic Riding and helps us take care of our horses. They’re part of the Camp Cole Team, too!

Memorials & Dedications

Remember a loved one through a tribute gift fund. Personalized gift funds are created to make contributions in the name of someone who has passed away. You can create a fund in their memory or contribute to one that has already been set up.

For every tribute fund, Camp Cole will plant a tree in memory or honor of your loved one.
