Join Our Village and sponsor a child today
At Agassiz Village, we know it takes a Village. By joining "Our Village" you will give a child the opportunity to attend Agassiz Village's life changing summer camp.
Villagers are able to sponsor one child or cabins of children for one summer at Agassiz Village. It costs $1,500 to provide a summer camp experience for one child and we ask that you cover costs for your child(ren) sponsored.
You will change a child's life by:
Ensuring they have the social and emotional skills needed to face life's challenges and be all they can be.
Supporting their development as a leader in their community.
Expanding their world through exposure to nature, sports and recreation, and the arts.
