Ways to Support Camp

What is Lions Camp Horizon?

2023 sessions are full and we are

Help Us Build
Organizational Capacity
For Our Next 50 Years

For almost 50 years, Camp Horizon has operated with mostly volunteer management and maintenance personnel. The size and complexity of our operations as well as regulatory compliance now exceeds the time available of our available volunteers. We need to recruit a small paid staff to handle fundraising, day-to-day management, maintenance and administration tasks so that our Foundation volunteer leadership can focus on strategy and our future.

Our goal is to raise at least $100,000 as “seed” money to fund the recruitment of a professional fundraiser (which we have never had before). This will in turn provide money for a small group of paid staff as indicated above.

Your generous donation of $50, $100 or any amount will be matched by our sponsoring contributors up to $50,000. Surplus funds, if any, will be used for facility improvements.

Thank you for your service!

September 1, 2023,

The Lions Camp Horizon Foundation would like to express its appreciation to our amazing 2023 Food Service Volunteers.  This year’s 5 camp sessions provided fun and enrichment to 204 teens and adults with disabilities.

During the season, our kitchen staff and volunteers served up over 3900 meal trays for our campers, staff and volunteers this season.

Having Food Service Volunteers provides face-to-face Camp experience to our Lions, their friends, family members and camp supporters while also reducing the labor costs to our small non-profit organization.

A special shout-out goes to the Everson Lions Club, which has provided food and volunteers for each camp session’s opening night for all of our 49 years.

We hope to see you on our food service line again in 2024, Camp Horizon’s 50th Anniversary year.

Thank you, Whatcom Talk for sharing the Lions Camp Horizon story!

From Whatcom Talk...

We all need our special places — where we go to feel safe and have fun, where we can be ourselves without a care in the world, and where people embrace us for who we are and wouldn’t want us any other way. Lions Camp Horizon has been that place for individuals with developmental and physical disabilities since 1974. Each summer, the former Blaine Air Force Station comes alive with campers eager to see old friends, make new ones, and, most importantly, have fun.
