Children discover their love of the outdoors through summer camps. In Western NC  that discovery often takes place in our area’s amazing public lands, including DuPont State Recreational Forest.  That’s why we’ve teamed up with some local summer camps for our Friends of DuPont Forest Summer Camp Raffle.

Make a donation $100 or more and enter for a chance to send a kid to one of these four camps in 2020.

All proceeds raised go to help support the work of Friends of DuPont Forest. Friends of Dupont Forest cares for the trails, protects the Forest and inspires the next generation to love our public lands.
Raffle winner will be announced at the DuPont Forest Festival on September 28, 2019. You do not have to be present to win.
