On Tuesday, May 26 we shared our difficult decision to cancel in-person camp at Usdan. We remain deeply committed to providing our Usdan campers the unique experience they love, the one that fuels them, the one that gives them the space and means to grow into the creative makers and doers of the future. 

Since opening in 1968, Usdan has operated as a nonprofit camp, which means that 100% of our student tuition and all of our donations go directly into funding our programs and scholarships. Those scholarships enable at least 25% of our students to attend Usdan. We aim to preserve that opportunity and your support will allow us to continue to make Usdan a camp that draws students of all economic backgrounds.

How would you like to have your gift used?
The Reimagine Fund - Usdan was built on the dream of young artists exploring their creativity and individuality in a natural environment. That remains our dream today. We launched The Reimagine Fund to fund our facilities costs after a fire destroyed two beloved studios and caused additional damage to other buildings. Your gift to The Reimagine Fund will help rebuild our Visual Art Department, upgrade our infrastructure, and ensure that we are able to offer every student at Usdan the space to grow and take risks, for the next fifty years.
Scholarships - Our need to provide financial assistance is more important now than ever. Help us make sure cost is not a barrier for all children to attend Usdan.
Add your friendship to the Friendship Forest ($100) - The Friendship Forest celebrates lifelong friendships that were forged at Usdan. To commemorate your friendship on a Friendship Forest wind chime, please make a $100 donation, and list your name and the name of your friend(s) as you would like them displayed. Friendship Forest plaques will be permanently displayed on trees along Usdan's woodland paths.
Tribute Gift - Honors a friend, colleague or relative, or the memory of a loved one.
General - support our mission to instill in young people the desire and drive to creatively contribute to the world now and for the rest of their lives.
