Magnified Giving’s Camp Give offers a summer day camp for youth in grades 5-9 to learn about “philanthropy”

Summer is right around the corner, and that means Magnified Giving’s Camp Give 2022 is too.

Camp Give is a fun and meaningful summer day camp where youth in grades 5-9 engage in service and learn how they can give their time, talent, and treasure to meet the needs of their community.

At Camp Give, participants will take two field trips to local nonprofit organizations to learn more about the impact philanthropy has on their community. They will also participate in energetic service activities, such as preparing food bags for young people in need, to experience giving firsthand! At the end of the week, campers will work together to choose one of the local nonprofits they served to receive a grant that will help the organization continue to make an impact in the community. Campers will also be able to enjoy a number of special activities, such as painting a meaningful art mural at Magnified Giving and a fun round of Putt-Putt golf.

Camp Give 2021 was a resounding success, students engaged in STEM-focused service activities.

Magnified Giving has partnered with Square1, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to discover, educate, support and inspire emerging entrepreneurs and leaders, to provide attendees with a camp experience fun, engaging and impactful.

Magnified Giving recognizes the impact of philanthropic experiences for students and strives to support and encourage the next generation to participate in creating a better future for themselves, their communities and the world. The benefits of giving on the emotional, academic and social well-being of students are considerable.

Programs such as Camp Give offer students the opportunity to work closely with each other and with leaders of nonprofit organizations. They are able to practice communicating their ideas, working in a team and learning to understand and respect each other. Students who participate in giving are also more engaged in the classroom, more confident in their ability to make an impact, and more likely to continue giving and volunteering for decades.
