Support us!


We are deeply grateful for the support, encouragement, and generosity of so many people who have made Camp Sojourner, Girls’ Leadership Camp possible. From volunteering in the camp office to contributing supplies to making copies to providing funding, Camp Sojourner is truly a community effort and labor of love. Because of the support we have received, we have been able to offer a sliding scale to families and make it possible for girls to come to camp regardless of money.

Thank you, to all the parents and guardians who have put their faith and trust in us for the last two years. Your desire to have your daughters take part in a summer leadership program and have an adventure outside of the city truly inspires us. Thanks, also, to our campers, whose humor, talent, courage, wisdom, kindness, and love makes the camp experience so positive for everyone involved. You give us hope about the future, knowing that you will be in charge someday and will think of new and creative ways of solving problems.

Special thanks to the foundations, companies, and large donors who have supported us during the last two and a half years:

  • Frank H. Jernigan Charitable Foundation, Inc.
  • Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation
  • Allen H. Hilles Fund
  • Children Can Shape the Future
  • Douty Foundation
  • Connelly Foundation
  • Seybert Institution
  • Pearson Vue

Again, we are so grateful to all of the individuals and groups who support Camp Sojourner, Girls’ Leadership Camp! We look forward to continuing to work with you as we build this program with and on behalf of Philadelphia girls. Please let us know if you would like to support us or be involved as we continue with our year-round programming and get ready for Camp Sojourner 2010!
