Tools and Advice to Help You Reach Your Goal

Why Are You Raising Money for Tube-a-thon?

Tube-a-thon is a great event! Its great to see your Camp friends after not seeing them since last fall or even last summer. Tube-a-thon is a weekend filled with tubing, laughing, Blue Harbor Water Park, hanging out, broomball , snow football, and prizes. But who really benefits?

  • All money raised goes directly to the Campership Fund
  • The Campership Fund is used to help families send their children to Camp even if they can’t afford the whole fee or any of it.
  • Our goal is to get kids to Camp. Lack of the financial means to pay for Camp should not stop a kid from having all the great experiences you have had at Camp.
  • Last year, Camp Anokijig gave out 260 camperships. That’s 260 kids who otherwise would not have had to the opportunity to have that Camp experience.
  • YOU are helping make a difference!
How Do I Raise The Money?
Not long ago, it was common to go door-to-door in your neighborhood and ask for donations. Times have changed and people are often more wary of people asking for money. You have to use some tools to your advantage.
  • Ask people you know! Friends, teachers, neighbors, relatives, your parent’s friends, etc. These are people you already have some connection with. They are much more likely to be receptive to your request.
  • Arm yourself with information. To be a good salesperson, which is what you really are at this point, you must know your product. Be able to answer these questions:
