Giving Tuesday

$25,000 Solar Panel Matching Goal Reached!

Help power some favorite CedarS activities for years to come.  Thanks to generous donors, solar panels are in place on the main dining halls, Care House, and several cabins.

With your help, we can install solar panels to power the waterslide and Aquatic Center (one of the highest energy users) by this summer!

Did you know that there are over 1,000 references to "sun" and "light" in the Bible, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and the Christian Science Hymnal? The sun and its light are a symbol of God's powerful love, shining unconditionally on one and all.

A Day of Generosity

#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. #GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

As a non-profit organization, CedarS relies on donor angels to open our gates every summer.  Each Giving Tuesday provides the opportunity to highlight needs for the upcoming season.

This day has inspired philanthropy in many first-time donors, including campers and staff. We've been humbled by campers who have given their babysitting money, weekly allowance, or savings to contribute to camp!  For #Giving Tuesday 2021, there were 423 donors including campers, current counselors, and recent young alumni.

What our donors & parents say

"The donors who give to camp have a special place in our hearts.  So many kids would not have the chance to experience such harmony in action and the opportunity to learn to apply Christian Science to every single activity without you."

- Parent

"Thank you for sending the CedarS fruitage. They are wonderful and everything you do for children and adults is life-changing for all of us.  Thank you for your love and prayers."

- Donor

"Thank you for all the creative and fun ways you are enriching the lives of young Christian Scientists. I am a young-at-heart supporter who has never been to the camps, but I appreciate what you do."
