Woodside Week is a week long direct social media outreach campaign lead by the Youth Programs Advisory Committee to support The Rowe Center’s larger month long Woodside Campership Drive. The goal of the YPROGS campaign is to reach camp alumni and friends of Rowe that may no longer be actively engaged with The Rowe Center and to raise $15,000 for camperships.

What is the Youth Programs Advisory Committee?

The Youth Programs Advisory Committee focuses on the sustainability, growth, quality, and well-being of Rowe’s youth- and young adult- focused programming. We are former campers, staff members, board members, and current representatives from the camps who work together in support of Rowe.
