Deposit Money at the Camp Store
We use the app FunFangle for our camp store, which allows families to add camp store money to their camper’s account, see their camper’s balance, and even donate remaining funds to camp if desired.
The camp store will feature snacks ($1-3 each) and souvenirs like hats, hoodies, t-shirts, stuffed animals, water bottles, and more ($3-35 each). See the items we will have available here.
You should have received an invitation via email to create a FunFangle account. If you’ve already created an account, you can login to deposit money for the camp store here. If you have not yet created an account and can’t find your invitation email:
Please note: There is not a photographer on Northwoods trips. Trip leaders will do their best to document the week, but photos may be limited.
