"I had the best time ever at Journey's End Farm Camp" -- former camper

"It was a formative experience of their lives. That is why I am so supportive for families to share in this enriching experience for their children" -- Dave Harvey Parent of 3 Past Campers

Since 1939, for over 70 years, children have spent their summers at JE experiencing life on a working farm and learning the skills necessary to create positive change in the world and for themselves. Campers learn responsiblity and self-confidence through taking care of farm animals, the garden, and the chores. They also spend plenty of time playing in the creeks, exploring the woods, and finding creative ways to have fun. Here is one testimony from a camper parent:

“Our daughter attended Journey’s End over 20 years ago, and we still recall the deep impression it made in her development. She now lives in an earth-friendly community where she can live out her passion for respecting the earth and all the people on it. I know this attitude was fostered by her early life experiences such as Journey’s End.”

Northbranch Monthly Quaker Meeting has a scholarship fund to support children in need who could not otherwise enjoy JE Farm Camp and receives contributions throughout the year. Due to the immense increase in requests for tuition assistance, Journey's End Scholarship fund needs your help to cover the cost for 14 campers who wish to attend this summer. This is our final attempt to meet this goal. The best way to change the world is one child at a time or in this case 14! These children can have a wonderful opportunity to broaden their horizons with your help!

Our Goal is to Raise $8500.00 to provide partial tuition to 14 Campers

JE tries to keep its costs low so that it is accessible to all children, but they can't do it alone. With this funding, 14 low-income children between the ages of 8-12 will get to have a life-changing summer at JE. Your contributions to our meeting scholarship fund are tax-deductible and help us tremendously to achieve our goal. The scholarships are open to all children attending to apply for. They are awarded based on need and what attending camp can do for the child and family.

For a $10 contribution, you will receive a beautiful postcard featuring a painting by Helena Guindon that captures the bucolic setting of Journey's End.

For $25, you will receive electronic copies of the JE Journal, the camper created newsletter that documents all of their memorable activities at camp. This was very popular last year and a fun way to be in touch with the happenings at camp.

For $100, you will receive a reproduction of a painting by Helena Guindon.

For $500, you will receive 6 reproductions from the"Life at Journey's End" series by Helena Guindon, 6 prints in all! These are stunning and beautiful pieces that capture the magic of JE Camp.

Why Should I Support This Effort?

In a world that is quickly losing its connection to nature and with more and more time spent in front of cell phones, TVs, and computers, places like JE are of vital importance to the planet. Your contribution to the scholarship fund is an investment in the future of these children and the future of this world and is tax deductible.
