In honor of Small Business Saturday, I thought I’d share with you some gift ideas, Alleghany style.
What better gift could you give a girl than a summer at Camp Alleghany? Well, we agree! And it just so happens that December 1st is the last full day to lock in our Early Bird Term Camp Tuition Rates. Until 11:59p.m. on December 1st, if you register for the 2014 Term Camp season and pay the $300 deposit, you’ll save $516 on tuition for a single term, or $1,360. for a full term! Now just think what you could do with those savings! Register your campers today.
Of course, you can give the gift of camp any time until we fill up. But by registering by the end of December 1st, you really do get substantial savings.
If you don’t currently have a ‘Ghany Girl in your life, you can still support girls coming to camp by contributing to the Lantern Scholarship Program, a tax-deductible gift that goes directly toward tuition for scholarship recipients.
You can also help support the mission of the Camp Alleghany Alumni Association which is “To support Camp Alleghany’s mission by uniting, giving, and enriching alumni, friends, and campers through loyalty and stewardship.” You can join the organization or give to their mission on this page.
Other ways to celebrate your ‘Ghany Girl
This year we’re not doing an Alleghany Christmas catalog like we have in the past, for a couple of reasons. First, my parents have always used their home as a catalog “warehouse.” But they literally just moved into their new home over the weekend, and we knew it would be tough to pull together the catalog this year due to the move.
Also, since we partnered with Everything Summer Camp, we find that they carry more than we ever could in the off-season, so we’re just encouraging everyone to purchase holiday gifts there!
Now, we do still have a small number of items offered year-round (not specifically just for Christmas), on this page of our site. We’ve gone kind of “low tech” with that page so that it’s not an online store or anything. It’s simply that if you’re interested in an item, you just contact the office to place an order. The payment options are credit cards over the phone or sending in a good old fashioned check! 🙂 If you see something that interests you, just e-mail the office.
We hope your holiday season is joyous, meaningful, and speaks to the heart of all December occasions — that there is peace on earth and good will to all.
