Inspire. Transform. Donate.
Camp changes lives
We know this. We hear this from our families and schools. We witness this in our staff and campers.
A gift of any size supports the people, programs, and place that make transformative outdoor education possible.
The GRP Annual Fund
Your gift to the Green River Preserve Annual Fund supports the people, programs and place that make transformative outdoor education possible and inspires stewardship of the Earth. It supports campers and students who are curious about the world around them. It supports staff who are dedicated to unstructured time exploring nature. It supports our camp buildings that promote life-changing education and provide a home for our community. It supports outreach to local schools and participating in the process of farm to table. It supports continuing to do the work because GRP is the camp we need for the world we want.
Do you want to help kids attend camp?
This year, we have more scholarship requests than ever and we are on a mission to help as many children as possible attend our camp, regardless of means! Our goal is to raise $32,000 by the end of summer, and we are asking for your support to make it happen. That’s why we are launching the Green River Preserve Backpack Challenge 👏 Donate $250 to our annual fund and get a special GRP Eagle Creek Wayfinder 30L backpack!

In middle school and college summers, I escaped from the heat and asphalt of central North Carolina by going up to the cool streams and forests of Green River, where I learned about fly fishing, wild blueberries, predators and prey, great campfire stories, and a multitude of tiny wonders and shared joys. I give to the Green River Annual Fund each year because I’m aware that I wouldn’t have been able to attend without the support of many others and I know that my gift helps make it possible for someone else to experience that magical place. Please join me in supporting the Annual Fund and help create the Joy for a new group of young explorers. Thanks in advance!
Join the Leaf Society
In the early days of Green River Preserve, there was a family who was trying to send their son to camp, but struggling to afford the tuition. The little boy said, “I will sleep on the floor and bring my own food if they let me come!” That child did come to camp, and his heartfelt statement helped start more than two decades of generous camp scholarships that eventually led to the creation of Green River Preserve’s Annual Fund.
