What bonds campers together better than a warm campfire? Become a member of our Campfire Circle and make those warm memories possible for F&W campers when the summer comes around. Campfire Circle members make a monthly gift, providing steady, reliable support for F&W and making your annual commitment easier for you to budget.

With a gift of just $10, $20 or $30 a month, Campfire Circle members will help campers:

  • grow the food they harvest to enjoy on their plates
  • learn to use tools to build a work project they can take pride in, and
  • gain confidence to climb, canoe and hike the mountains, rivers, and trails of Vermont and beyond

With a monthly gift of $50 to $100, you can put a transformative summer experience within reach for a camper in need.
