Camelback Mountain Resort is all about family fun 365 days a year. In the spirit of family and giving back to the community, the last several years Camelback Mountain Resort has worked with non-profit and not-for-profit charities to help raise money through the Big Give program. As part of our "Big Give", charitable organizations can apply for the opportunity to raise tens of thousands of dollars if selected for the Big Give.
Any interested organizations may complete the linked questionnaire and short essay application to explain why they should be chosen as one of the winners of the Big Give for Summer 2013. Applications are due by May 3, 2013. The winners will be notified the week of May 13, 2013 .
There are three ways that your organization will raise money with this program:
First, your organization will have an in-park presence at Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark, on your “Big Give” day (either on August 17th or 24th) to raise awareness of your organization and to sell rubber ducks for the race (see explanation below).
Secondly, the organizations will sell “rubber ducks” for $10 each and 100% of the proceeds will go to your charity. The ducks will compete in The Great Pocono Quack, a duck race in the Camelbeach Blue Nile Adventure River that runs throughout the park. The rubber ducks can be sold in advance of the event, as well as the day of the event. The purchaser does not need to be present to win. The top three winners will receive goody bags filled with swag from local businesses.
Lastly, your organization will sell discounted general admission tickets to Camelbeach using an online coupon code. The tickets will be sold for $27. Your organizations will receive $13 of each ticket sold. The tickets will be available online in early June through August 1 (or until you reach your quota of tickets sold). The tickets are valid any day of the 2013 season.
Once the organizations are selected, more detailed instructions will be forwarded.
