 report that paddle
 boards will be our 
project! Get ready for

The Change for Chanco youth fundraising program is in its seventh year at Chanco and is a program where our campers save their change, say prayers for Chanco and make a difference to Chanco’s programs. Every dollar is matched by an anonymous donor. In this year’s program, the amount of money raised will determine how many paddle boards we can purchase. The number of board we are able to purchase and whether this is a one year or two year project depends on YOU! Give generously and help us make this happen. Grandparents and parents can donate too and their dollars are also matched. Simply make a check to Chanco on the James with “Change for Chanco” in the memo line and mail to 394 Floods Drive, Spring Grove VA 23881. Or click the “donate now” button on the front page of this website for easy on line donation noting “Change for Chanco” in the comments section.

In 2014, the sixth annual “Change for Chanco” program was an enormous success. The campers saved their change toward a stellar addition to Chanco’s camp programs: NEW archery equipment! New and improved equipment means better shooting and more equipment means less waiting for you this summer! The campers astonished us with their generosity, which after being matched totaled $5,629.

Six years of successful youth fundraising means that additions to camp such as a 32’ rock climbing wall, a Revolution water rocker/slide, disc golf, renovated field games (new regulation sized Ga Ga pit, enlarged and repaved basketball court and tether ball), and a new high ropes element are all a reality at Chanco thanks to our generous campers and camper families! These projects take Chanco to new heights, literally and programmatically, and remind us that no one is too young to make a difference. Thank you for your generous support! Chanco is you!
