Mission: Send Our Kids to Camp!

Did you go away to camp as a young teen?  Learn about nature and yourself in a completely new environment?

St. Peter's School, in San Francisco's Mission District,  would like to give that experience to their 7th graders by sending them to Caritas Environmental Education Camp.  For ALL of our students, this will be the FIRST TIME that they've had a camp experience or been away from home.  You can read more about St. Peter's and our students here .

Most of our students live in the Mission, which is right in the heart of San Francisco.  Your contributions will allow St. Peter's students to experience the great outdoors and come to understand their place in nature and the universe.  

It will cost $500 to send each 7th grader to camp for the five day Caritas session.   That includes EVERYTHING - food, transportation, housing and programming.  More than half of the funds have been secured so far so  now, we need to raise only $200 per student. 

Funds are needed by the end of February to send our first set of 7th graders go to camp in May 2018.

Would you sponsor a student for the entire camp at $200?  Or a day at $40 dollars?  Or multiple students?

St Peter's School's administration and faculty, our 7th graders and their parents sincerely appreciate your help in making this opportunity a possibility.  In appreciation we'll send you thank yous and photographs of our  students' adventures.
