VWS 2023 Annual Campaign

Every Generation needs Regeneration

WE NEED YOUR HELP to stoke the fire for others to access our nature connection mentoring programs.

2023 was a year full of honoring our past, serving our present, and supporting a future rich in nature connection for youth and adults.

This year:
YOUR DONATIONS funded $45,000 in scholarship and reparations funds to increase program accessibility.

OUR COMMUNITY GREW with new families and participants and the launch of new adult and youth programs.

WE WELCOMED BACK the largest mentoring staff in our history and supported past VWS participants' evolution into field mentors.


Any amount helps:
$70 = one child for one day of camp
$100 = one child’s partial scholarship or reparations tuition waiver
$225 = one adult for a weekend workshop
$385 = one child for a week of summer camp
$1,725 = one child for a year of Foxwalk Forest School
$2,275 = one child for a year of Great Blue Heron Community School

We are sincerely grateful for your support!
