Initially established with a gift from Elizabeth “Libby” Moore, founding Director and Chair of Red Canoe Foundation. These funds will be used to support the general operations of the Foundation.
William “Bill” Olmsted and David “Dave” Thompson started as trip staff for Camp Wabun in 1966 and 1968 respectively. They were life-long educators, dedicated to improving the world for others; the primary focus of this scholarship fund will be to facilitate access to a wilderness experience for Bear Island Nation members, First Nation, and other children of color.
This scholarship fund will support campers who qualify for full scholarships with a preference for candidates who live in Philadelphia, Boston or other Gateway Cities in Massachusetts.
Mary Alice’s father was a Camp Wabun founder who met her husband when he was a camper. Their six children and ten of their grandchildren have attended Wabun and seven have served as staff for the camp. The focus on this fund is to sustain access to this wilderness opportunity for future generations.
