HUG Update

Good afternoon everyone,

The Camp Chestermere HUG Fundraiser continues. Thank you again to those who were able to join us for the banquet on May 11. It was a huge success. On that night we raised $7196.50 which brought us to $16591.50....... and climbing. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Your donation is helping us do what we do better including painting Horton's Hut, renovating the Chap and purchasing new wireless microphones.

There is still time for you to be involved. Our goal is to raise $50 000 from the campaign. Again, HUG is about celebrating our past while looking towards our future. You can Help Us Grow by purchasing a leaf to put onto the graphic that is displayed in the lobby of the lodge. Green leaves are $25, pink leaves $50 and purple leaves $100. Write a blessing, a word of encouragement, your favourite scripture verse, or simply sign your name. Send us your information and message and we will fill out the leaf for you. All donations (leaf purchases) are tax deductible.

Another way you can help is by donating online. If you go to the ATB Cares website and donate there, ATB will add an additional 15% to your donation. In the "comments" section on the ATB Cares page you simply just write HUG and the donation will go to our HUG Campaign. Here is the link for the ATB Cares website:

Thank you again for supporting the work we do at Camp Chestermere. We invite you to prayerfully consider giving monthly to Camp Chestermere. We can set it up so a designated amount could automatically be withdrawn from your account each month to support Camp Chestermere. If everyone in our community donated just $5 a month it would radically change our organization and would truly Help Us Grow. Again, donations to Camp Chestermere are tax deductible.

For more information check out our website at or contact Camp Chestermere at 403 272 6030. Thank you again for your ongoing love, prayers, and support.
