Community Collaboration

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."

- Helen Keller


Community Foundation of Henderson County has several charitable camperships that help children attend area camps.

Going to camp gets children out in nature. Unplugged from technology, they gain an appreciation for the natural environment and discover the wisdom and fun the outdoors has to offer.

Current CFHC Camperships:

  • Jeanne deSaussure Smith Ton-A-Wandah Girl Campership
  • Camplify
  • The Great Day Fund
  • Falling Creek Camp Fund
