COVID-19 What We Need Search
Items Needed Now
Here’s our Amazon WISH LIST of things we need, but feel free to get items elsewhere too! BJs, Best Buy, Staples, WB Mason, WalMart, and many others, especially local businesses, allow you to purchase items on line. Either ship to us directly, or drop them off on the front porch of the Club! Just let us know what you are getting so we can adjust the list!
We need your help to re-open! In order to continue to serve our kids In a COVID-19 world, we have to purchase new equipment that can be easily sanitized, provide separate supplies for every kid, give them access to technology, and provide PPE to use as part of our daily operations.
The MOST IMMEDIATE NEED is for the 6’ resin folding tables and chromebooks since the kids will be contained to one space and can’t share equipment.
We can’t do this without you! Reopening and dealing with COVID19 is going to cost significantly more than what comes in to us as revenue, and the changes are being mandated by the state. THANK YOU for your help in re-opening our doors!!!

We are in desperate need of a new one-ton dump truck - which is the lifeblood of camp! Our current truck is in great disrepair and is likely not going to be worth fixing.
As the long term impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic play out in our youth, mentoring is needed now more than ever. With a waitlist that hovers at just under 100 (75% boys), the need for volunteers is on-going.
The commitment is simple, a few times twice a month, for a minimum of a year is all it takes to make a lasting impact on the life of a child--and your own. To read more about our volunteer opportunities please visit our website: www.CapeBigs.org today.
