EVENT DETAILS: Happy Camper Night, Wayfinders’ signature fundraiser now in its tenth year, ensures that all Wayfinders scholars have access to summer camp opportunities, year-round enrichment programs, and mentoring at no cost to their families.  

Attendees at Happy Camper Night have an opportunity to hear the inspiring stories of our scholars; enjoy casual camp-themed food, wine, and locally crafted beer; and listen to bluegrass music. The event is held partially outdoors under the starry night sky at Camp Mindy, on the campus of the Levine Jewish Community Center.

ABOUT WAYFINDERS:  All proceeds from Happy Camper Night benefit our Wayfinders scholars. Wayfinders’ mission is to ignite students’ potential by expanding their confidence, connections, and horizons. We achieve this through summer camp experience, year-round enrichment programs, and mentor relationships for self-motivated, underserved students.  

In 2022, Wayfinders will serve 160 low-income Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students. Initially, scholars spend summers at nature camps in the mountains. However, as they age, their programming shifts to academic camps on college campuses, leadership development and career exploration opportunities, job-shadowing, and internships to help them transition from middle school to high school to college and career.  

Year-round, scholars participate in enrichment programs designed to increase their social capital such as community service, job shadowing, financial planning education, technology workshops, and employer visits. Each student is supported by a dedicated mentor who helps prepare them for camp and guides/supports them throughout their years in our program. 

YOUR support of Happy Camper Night in 2022 will expand Wayfinders’ programs and deepen the positive lasting impact made on our scholars. Thank you!
