Camp for a Cause

camp-cause-iconWe are in this together.

Over the last few years SMashBox has worked together with host organizations, campers and parents to donate thousands of dollars to local and international causes… organizations who have been recipients of funding include the Aspen Animal Shelter and Charity:Water, to name a few. 

 

How SMashBox Contributes

SMashBox raises dollars and awareness for important causes through the SMashBox Saturday program. SMashBox also partners with great non-profit youth organizations domestically and abroad to provide under-served kids with a SMashBox camp experience. SMashBox donates time, supplies, curriculum and a percent of profits in order to bring kids to SMashBox and bring SMashBox to kids.

How Parents Contribute

Camp families are invited to Camp for a Cause, both on SMashBox Saturdays and by clicking the financial support box in the summer camp registration process.

 

How Campers Contribute

SMashBox Saturdays and adventure day camp sessions expose campers to a need in the world as part of the curriculum. Through a game, craft, presentation or activity campers are invited to be part of the solution.

SMashBox also teaches campers about choices and philanthropy via “SMashBucks.” Campers have the opportunity to donate some of their hard earned camp currency, generally spent on treats and trinkets, to the cause. Generous donors then match the camper fake money with real money.*
