          AMC Cold River Camp Wish List  


The AMC Cold River Camp Wish List is a way to encourage giving to tangible causes to help improve camp life.  If you like to see where your money goes, donating to the Wish List could be for you!


All contributions are tax-deductible.  All donors are recognized on the Cold River Camp website and in The Little Deer Dispatch or can choose to remain anonymous. You do not have to fund an entire item.


The AMC Cold River Camp Committee is deeply appreciative of those who can and do give that extra support to the Cold River Camp community with generous gifts of time, money or goods.

1.     Game camera, to see what critters are in camp when we’re asleep or not there (about $500).

2.     Garden Fund for additional trees, shrubs, special gardening tools, etc.


In keeping with and helping to preserve CRC’s character:


3.     Furniture Repair and Replacement Fund (lodge porch, lodge, and cabins: $ cost varies with repair or replacement).
