Donate to the Vezie Fund and Give the Gift of Camp

My time at GAC has changed me in ways I never could have expected. I have grown into a completely different and happier person because of my time spent at Gold Arrow. I have become so much more confident in myself and have learned to always be true to what I believe in. I have also learned how to make genuine connections and have face-to-face conversations with people I have never met before. I’m so much more easy-going and positive because of my time at camp. GAC has taught me how to be the best version of myself everyday.

Camp experiences can have a profoundly positive impact on children’s lives. For the past ten years, Gold Arrow Camp has partnered with the Max and Marion Caldwell Foundation to offer camp scholarships to deserving families through the Manny Vezie Fund.

Each year, the Caldwell Foundation awards “camperships” to children attending Gold Arrow Camp, Kennolyn Camps, Camp Krem, Camp Harmon, and Via West.  Through the generosity of the Gold Arrow Camp community, seven children were provided financial assistance to attend camp last summer.

In this season of giving, would you consider giving the gift of camp to a deserving child? There is no donation too large or too small.

Every $1200 the Vezie Fund raises covers one week of camp for a scholarship recipient who would otherwise not be able to attend camp. 

Your tax-deductible donation of any amount to the Manny Vezie Fund will help a child have a life-changing camp experience.

You can make your donation by clicking here.

Or, if you prefer to send your donation by mail, please make your check payable to the “MMCF” and send it to the Caldwell Foundation, PO Box 1653, Capitola, CA  95010 (please put “Manny Vezie Fund” in the memo on your check).

You will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donation with the Foundation’s tax I.D. number.

Your donation will both honor Manny Vezie’s legacy and help positively impact the life of a child.

“I do not profess to be anything more than what I really am: a very simple camp director interested in kids finding themselves.” – Manny Vezie – 1977
