Annual Giving at Sanborn Western Camps
Sanborn Western Camps
and Colorado Outdoor Education Center have two annual funds:
THE SANDY AND LAURA SANBORN SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Scholarship Fund provides tuition assistance to
deserving young people who could not otherwise attend Big Spring or High Trails.
Awards are also made to schools which attend High Trails Outdoor Education Center to enable low-income
students to participate in the
residential program with their classes. In addition to contributing to the
general scholarship fund, it is also possible to provide the tuition for a
specific camper selected by the Scholarship Committee and to receive
information and reports about that camper’s experience at Big Spring or High
THE PROGRAM EXCELLENCE FUNDThis unrestricted fund is used to help outfit our activities and trips with first-class equipment, to support facility improvements, to hire and train an outstanding staff, and to maintain the overall quality of the camp and outdoor education programs. Income from this fund is used to supplement other camp revenues and to help keep tuition as reasonable as possible.
