Odd Fellows Summer Camp Scholarship
Continuing a community service begun over 9 years ago, the Davis Odd Fellows Encampment announced that it is now accepting applications for children’s camp scholarships for the summer of 2021. These scholarships enable children to register for programs provided by the City of Davis Parks and Recreation over the summer months.
The 2021 summer camp programs will be modified to meet restrictions in response to COVID-19. Day camps, cooking camps, sports camps and specialty camps are just a few of the upcoming options. Unfortunately, due to ongoing COVID restrictions, it was determined by the City of Davis that Camp Putah and Trekkers cannot be offered this summer.
Some of the available programs include:
- Week-long day camps including Summer Quest, Rainbow Summer, and Kids in the Kitchen
- Youth Swimming Classes
- Horse Camp at Pine Trails
The Davis Encampment has adopted, as one of its missions, to facilitate and fund summer programs and summer camp experiences for children who might otherwise not be able to afford a special summer activity.
“We are so pleased to be able to give local families the opportunity for their children to enjoy a fun summer experience,” said Juelie Roggli, a member of the Davis Encampment and coordinator of the scholarship program.
Davis Encampment is part of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The Davis Odd Fellows was chartered in 1870, and the Davis Encampment received its charter in 1955.
Funds for the scholarships were raised through several Odd Fellow fundraising events such as Davis Odd Fellows Chocolate Festival, Thursday Live! Holiday Show, and donations from members of the Odd Fellows Lodge and the Davis community.
“Many of the children who receive our camp scholarships come from families who might not otherwise be able to afford the City of Davis summer programs,” said Charles Filmer, Chief Patriarch of the Davis Encampment. “Our goal is to help as many children as we can experience a joy-filled summer.”
