Make a list of things you need to purchase for the camp
Write down the things that you will need to purchase for organizing the camp. Talk to other members and leader of the camp, and share views. Make a budget on paper, listing every expense that will be incurred. Some of the main expenses you can take into consideration while making a checklist may include equipment like tents, cargo trucks, plastic bags to hold camp clothes, garbage, etc.
Talk to family members, friends and community members
The best way to get money for summer camp is to talk to your family members, friends and people in your community. Be sure to tell them all the details and the list of expenses you have just made. Do not talk to a person or two; get in touch with as many people as you can. If you can present your budget in a good manner and can convince family members and friends, you can definitely get some money this way.
Make a list of reasons on which you can convince people
If the reasons for holding the summer camp are solid, you can make people want to help you raise funds. If the summer camp is intended for research or educational purposes, you will find plenty of donors willing to give you money.
Run a small campaign at school/college
Your school or college can be a good platform for fundraising for the summer camp. Talk to teachers and active students to join hands with you.
Do a yard sale
You can sell stuff at yard sale to help you get money for the summer camp. Most of the times, yard sales can get you enough money for camping. Have your family members and relatives sell their used items on the yard sale.
