Stomping Ground’s first capital campaign is about building a sustainable and equitable future.
HELP Purchase and Renovate A CAMP PROPERTY
We partner with young people to inspire the next generation of radically empathetic decision makers. Together we re-imagine a more perfect world. We serve children of diverse backgrounds and privilege to plant the seeds of community and understanding for life.
We are a 501c3 not for profit organization.

Camper growth each summer
Campers this summer
2019 will be our fifth and largest summer. We have grown enormously since our first summer, serving 64 campers in 2015 to serving over 700 campers this summer. We have a camp that kids love and parents of all income levels want to send them too, but we need your help. Today we rent a property and are at capacity. We are turning families away.
Just fifteen minutes outside of Saratoga Springs, New York is a camp property with 100 plus years of history. The site is currently unoccupied, with 70 acres of land, two spring fed lakes, a dining hall, and cabins with room for us to grow our capacity. The land is more beautiful and scenic than we could have possibly imagined, and has the structure to take Stomping Ground into the future, but it will require substantial renovations.
They say you are the combination of the five people you spend the most time with. For most of us that means a lot of folks that are mostly like us. By supporting this campaign you give kids a chance to change that. To play, laugh, and cry with people from different neighborhoods, communities, backgrounds, ethnicities, and so much more. You have a chance to make a huge difference in a child’s life.
We would love to talk more. I hope you will consider supporting our campaign.
