In the past few years, we’ve generated tens of thousands of dollars for scholarships—better known as “camperships”—for children whose families would otherwise not be able to afford the camp experience. Other beneficiaries of the Foundation are the many local youth-serving organizations we support with fund-raising events and programs each year. Our annual Community Day is a ton-of-fun event held the month before camp opens for the season. Community Day is one of our largest fund-raisers, with all proceeds going to the Liberty Lake Foundation.
