Night Under the Stars Event Proves Love is Never Canceled at Camp Knutson

Web posted July 27, 2021
The Camp Knutson volunteers presented their Night Under the Stars “That’s Amore” gathering on July 17th online along with many clusters of watch parties around the state of Minnesota and beyond. There were over 200 people bidding on items in the online auction which alone raised over $30,000 for the campers with disabilities and medical needs that Camp Knutson serves.

The program featured campers, volunteers, staff, and supporters sharing about the difference Camp Knutson makes in their lives and the larger community. In total over $200,000 was raised. These funds raised will help support the many needs that camp has in order to provide a wide array of programs this summer; family camps, virtual camps, and limited capacity in person camps. The funds will also be used to help in preparation and planning to be ready to serve hopefully a record number of campers in 2022.

“Love is getting us through this. We are so thankful for our volunteers and entire community for showing their support, especially at this critical time. One of our volunteers shared that Love is never canceled at Camp Knutson and our Night Under the Stars celebration proved that once again this year,” stated Jared Griffin, Camp Director. The program was recorded and can be watched at www.campknutson/NUTSwatch.
