Happy Camper Fun Run

Sequanota's Happy Camper Fun Run

Join us for the 3rd Annual Happy Camper Fun Run! This benefit 5K is an annual fundraising event for Sequanota camper scholarships. This year, we are excited to combine this event with the Love Your Mother Earth Retreat. On April 22nd, 2023, lace up your running (or walking!) shoes to take part in the Happy Camper Fun Run. All ages and abilities are invited to participate. You can sign up for the 5K or the one mile trail run/walk/hike.

Our goal for the Happy Camper Fun Run is to raise enough funds for 13 Bring a Friend for Free Scholarships so that current campers can introduce their friends to the experience of summer camp. One Bring a Friend for Free scholarship is $400.00. Your participation and support ensures that new kids have a summer camp experience.

You are invited to come to Camp Sequanota to race on-site, or participate by running wherever you live! Please see below for the on-site schedule of events, which will include Earth Day activities and a worship service on Sunday. 

How to Participate

2. Set a fundraising goal!

When you register yourself, a fundraising page will automatically be created for you. You can share your link and recruit sponsors to help meet your fundraising goal! Friends and family can donate directly on your “participant” page here or send a check to Sequanota Lutheran Conference Center and Camp at PO Box 245, Jennerstown, PA 15547.

$200 provides a scholarship for one 1/2 week of camp for a camper!
$150 is the cost of one week of day camp for a camper!

About Camp Sequanota

Sequanota is a place of connection: connection to Christ, to creation, and to community. When at Sequanota, guests and campers are able to gather and form connections and relationships that would be difficult to form in other environments. Sequanota is a place that grants guests and campers the opportunity to connect to God, to nature, and to others.

Whether you come to Sequanota for a retreat, for summer camper, to volunteer, or for an event, you will be sure to form meaningful connections while you are here and take them with you when you go.

To learn more about our programs and retreats, visit www.sequanota.com.

The Sequanota Camper Scholarship Fund ensures that all campers have the opportunity to come to camp regardless of finances. Be a part of supporting Sequanota campers by participating in the Annual Happy Camper Fun Run or sponsoring a participant today.
