The Nature Camp Foundation provides long term support for Nature Camp, fostering ecological awareness through education.
As the association for Nature Camp alumni and friends, the Nature Camp Foundation comprises former and current campers, counselors, and parents, as well as other friends with an interest in supporting and sustaining Nature Camp. The NCF publishes a newsletter (The Afterglow ) twice a year, sponsors Service Weekends at Nature Camp in May and September, and organizes an annual meeting and a reunion every five years. Since its founding in 1989, the NCF has supported and contributed to Nature Camp, through monetary and material donations, work on buildings, grounds and facilities, and an organized base of personal support (speakers for evening programs at Nature Camp, promoters of Nature Camp to local potential campers and organizations, professional fundraisers, lawyers, accountants, etc.).
