Help us spread the word about Buck’s Rock
for Summer 2018
We know Buck’s Rock is a unique and special place. It changed my life as a teenager and I see how it continues to transform the lives of hundreds of campers each and every summer. However, we believe there are many potential Buck’s Rockers out there who just don’t know about Buck’s Rock, or they fear summer camp is too expensive and beyond their reach. We want you to help us change that by getting the word out about Buck’s Rock to your friends, your extended family, and your community.
When I came back to Buck’s Rock after 35 years, the biggest surprise for me was that there wasn’t a waiting list of campers beating down the door to get into Buck’s Rock. Our goal isn’t to fill Buck’s Rock to the point where campers have to wait in line to get into shops, but simply to reach our capacity of about 325 campers per session. Although several of our sessions over the past two years have been full, we have had other sessions with as many as 50 spaces available. I know that there are at least an additional 50 campers from Maine to Florida and from San Diego to Seattle, and everywhere in between that would like to have an amazing summer at Buck’s Rock.
I was fortunate to attend Buck’s Rock on financial aid, for which I am still grateful. We know not every family can afford to pay full tuition. That’s why we’ve begun using School and Student Services (SSS by NAIS). This system will help us process more financial aid applications and help make Buck’s Rock accessible to more campers and families. Through the nonprofit, Friends of Buck’s Rock, we are able to provide some full scholarships. But they are currently full for Summer 2018. However, we are able to provide at least some aid to every family in need. In the future, we hope to be able to add additional full scholarships as well.
