Women Who Have, Helping Women Who Need

CampExperience™ motto is we are “women who have, helping women who need.” We believe that each of us have the ability to make a difference for others, and that this positive impact is multiplied as we work together with other women.

CampExperience will not only change your life, but the lives of women supported by our Charity Partners. 100% of all on-site activities of our Charity Bow-tique shopping and Optional Personal Services, as well as general donations and money raised through our promotions benefit our Charity Partners.

Now in its 12th year, CampExperience™ has raised $350,000 in cash, 50,000 pounds of donated goods and over 1000 hours of donated time for our Charity Partners.  96% of “Camp Sisters” say their “life has been improved” by participation in CampExperience™ events.  The 2016 Charity Partners are Work Options for Women WOW and Easter Seals.

Here is a testimonial of how we have made a difference in the lives of women from the Executive Director of Dress for Success Denver:

Amazing…just amazing what one woman can do.  You have to be so proud, Betsy.  I’ll be sure to get thank you’s to everyone on the list.  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!! Here’s how $14,000 (raised by Camp Sisters) affects DFS Denver:

$14,000 allows 28 women to participate in every program we have ($500 per woman)

$14,000 represents 4% of our entire budget

$14,000 underwrites 20% of our Career Center which is helping 600 women secure employment this year

The impact $14,000 is HUGE.  Since 85% of our women are single moms with an average of 3 children,  85% of 600 is 510 women and 1,530 children your donation impacted.  That’s a total of 2,040 women and children your donated impacted.  Gives me goosebumps… Best regards, Donna Deteau, Executive Director, Dress for Success Denver, 1510 High St., 2nd Floor, Denver, CO 80218

We are always adding new charity partners throughout the year as we coordinate the next CampExperience Annual Retreat. Check back often to see who is new!
