The primary responsibility of the Board of Directors is to raise funds to bring deserving children from underserved communities to Camp Hawkeye; where they will be able to grow and develop in an encouraging and supportive environment.
Summer camp has had a tremendous influence on the lives of the board members and their families over the years. Each individual strongly believes in the positive outcomes that follow attendance at a well run camp program. They are committed, 365 days a year, to try and provide similar opportunities as they had to underserved youth.

“I am incredibly happy with the success of the Hawkeye Campership Fund this year! It is great to see so many people pull together for such an important cause.
Thank you to each and every donor that gave this year (more than 80) and to the board for all their hard work in 2009. This past year we ran four fundraising events, took in over $15,000, had most of our expenses underwritten and kept the rest to under 2% of donations, and helped Camp Hawkeye bring 40 deserving campers to camp.
The strength of the Board was demonstrated in 2009 by battling the down economy, raising more camperships than last year, and fulfilling our promise to many deserving kids. I look forward to 2010 and am confident in our board and supporters to continue to help maintain our commitment to current and future deserving families.”
