First Camp Kesem Meeting of the Year
On this past Monday, the 2012-2013 CKIU year officially got started with our call-out meeting. After a successful turnout at the student involvement fair the previous week, we had a packed room for the call-out meeting. There was a combination of returning counselors and prospective members at the meeting and after watching a couple videos from other CK chapters there was a lot of excitement in the air. Everyone is already eager to get to work on camp this year.
One of the biggest changes for the counselors this year is “Pay Your Way to Camp”. For anyone that wants to be a counselor at camp this year, they have to help in the fundraising efforts for the year. This year we are planning on raising at least $65,000 for camp and that is obviously not an easy task to achieve. Prospective members and returning counselors will all have to raise $500 on their own by the end of the school year. This may sound tough but, there are opportunities throughout the year for them to lower the amount of money they have to raise by attending various fundraising events.
Some of the events include:
- Football Game Cannings
- Bar Cannings
- Car Wash
- Make the Magic
- Committee Meetings
- Letter Writing Parties
There is also the ability to create your own fundraisers or start a Friends of Kesem page in order to reach the $500 goal.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more updates about CKIU!
