The Trisha Dohn
Summer Camp Scholarship for Kids


The Trisha Dohn Summer Camp Scholarship was established in collaboration with the Great Miami Valley YMCA.

This scholarship provides for weeklong residential summer camp experiences for children, ages 7-16 at YMCA's Camp Campbell Gard in Hamilton, Ohio.   Trisha Westmeier attended Camp Campbell Gard for many years as both a camper and a counselor.  She met and married her husband, Christian Dohn, while they served as camp counselors in 1986.

Trish believed strongly in the transformative, uplifting and healing experience that camp can provide to children and young adults.  The scholarship is available to all children, but special consideration will be given to children who are struggling with personal/life challenges and for whom the camp experience may provide a comforting and supportive environment as they navigate a difficult period in their life.

Greetings everyone! I just wanted to give an update on the Trisha Dohn Scholarship Fund. To date, over $13,000 has been donated!!! I wish there were better words than “Thank You” to let you all know how appreciative and touched Zander, Bella & I are for all of your generosity. With your help something has been created that is truly making a difference in the lives of children.

Without divulging personal information, I want to let everyone know that the scholarship fund was able to send a child to Camp Campbell Gard this past summer. They were a returning camper who lost a parent to cancer this past year and was unable to afford to go. I received the information and some photos of them at camp and it was emotionally overwhelming to see how happy this child was. Your support has made this scholarship fund a reality. Many many thanks again. Trisha would be proud to say the least.

Not only is Camp Campbell Gard one of the best summer camps in the area, it is truly affordable. The cost for one week of overnight camp is approx. $550. We are well on our way to reaching our goal of $20k and making this a self sustaining scholarship fund. Truly, even the smallest donation goes an incredibly long way. Thank you to all of those who donated, anyone wishing to donate can continue to use the GoFundMe site or checks can be mailed to:
