Do You Want to Attend This Year’s Summer Dance Camp, But Can’t Afford To?
Hello, Cali Dance Camp hopefuls. As you all know, the Dance Engagements staff and crew are hosting another Dance Camp this year at the beautiful and historic Camp Hollywoodland, but unfortunately, some of you may not have the necessary resources and funds to attend this year’s camp. Events like the huge luncheons, amazing and diverse dance lessons, award ceremony, Saturday-night’s dance party and more won’t be enjoyed by those of you who we want to come. Well, we have some greatideas and options for you to try so that you can attend this fun and educational retreat without breaking your bank, or your back.
- Idea #1: Gourmet Caramel Apples
I know what you’re thinking: Gourmet Candy Apples? Fortunately, we’ve secured products from a special provider so that you-can sell some tasty gourmet candy apples in enough quantities to pay your way to a spot in our Dance Camp. They are great value for the money, and practically sell themselves.
- Idea #2: Gourmet Kettle-Corn Popcorn
Much like our previous idea, our friends at California Snack Foods have provided us with some delectable and affordable gourmet popcorn flavors that are sure to please. Simply sell as many of these bags as you can to help you afford a spot for camp. These bags of popcorn come ready to eat and the only popping that needs to be done is to pop one kernel in your mouth and enjoy! The sizes are big and the prices are small.
- Idea #3: Attend a Live Taping of a TV Show
This is one of the more fun options that you can choose to help raise funds for your awesome spot in our camp. At any number of studios, TV shows are being taped with a live studio audience, and you are that audience. With every taping that you attend, a donation in your name to Dance Engagements will be received, paying part or even all of your total reservation fee. Who doesn’t like TV and Dancing?
- Idea #4: Complete a Scratch-Off Donation Card
A Scratch-Off Donation Card is sort of like a bingo card for donations, and you can have anyone willing to donate to your spot scratch off a piece of the card. The rules are simple: find a willing person, have them scratch off a piece, and then they’ll do what that piece says, which is usually giving a certain dollar amount. Completely scratch off a card to earn your spot for camp, and don’t forget to thank those who helped you with your card.
- Idea #5: Restaurant Fundraising
If you have a favorite restaurant that your friends, family, church or school go to, then this is the perfect idea for you. Fundraising at a restaurant can be the easiest and surest way to earn your spot for camp. Many, many restaurants offer this option, and it can be a great way to get in and start earning that money. Choose a restaurant everyone knows and loves, and you can say goodbye to work and hello to fun.
- Idea #6: Come Up With Your Own
Much like dancing itself, the person has to work hard, be creative and imaginative in order to be good. So, like a great dancer, come up with your own moves and show us what you got. If you have an amazing idea for a fundraiser, go for it! Anything safe, fun and effective that can help you achieve your goal and get you dancing is a good idea. Who knows, maybe your idea can be featured in next year’s fundraising article!
