Send a child to camp in Jack’s name

Great News…thanks to the generosity of our supporters we have reached our goal of raising $150,000 to fully fund the Jack Cheley Endowed Campership!

What Can I Do If I Missed the Opportunity to Support This Fund?

Why not consider supporting our annual campaign and allocate your gift to the Cheley Scholarship Fund – this will directly support the funding of annual camperships for young people to attend Cheley Camps.

About the Fund

In recognition of 30 years of the John Austin Cheley Foundation (A Thousand Summers) and in conjunction with Cheley Colorado Camps’ 100th-anniversary celebrations we are honoring Jack Cheley’s legacy by establishing the Jack Cheley Endowed Campership.

This $150,000 fund will ensure that a deserving camper attends Cheley Camps every year in Jack’s name, in perpetuity, developing lasting character and resiliency for the recipient through challenging experiences in a supportive and natural environment – just as Jack intended. We are excited that the first camper to benefit from this new Endowed Campership will attend Cheley Camps in the summer of 2022.
