Formation Meeting

On March 25th, Megan Roberts, Melanie Robison, Sharon Bloom, Joan Geleskie, and Patricia Ann Dunlavy met in order to form a 501c3 corporation with the purpose of acquiring Camp Golden Pond.

We aim to promote leadership and youth development through safe, affordable camp experiences that will allow both youth and adults to develop confidence, courage, and an appreciation for the outdoors.

Our board now consists of:
President Megan Roberts
Secretary Melanie Robison
Treasurer Sharon Bloom
Patricia Ann Dunlavy
Joan V Geleskie

The board will be meeting again on April 6th in order to review our articles of incorporation and bylaws before filing. If you were unable to attend the initial meeting, but are interested in joining the board, please contact us for details on the April 6th meeting. Even if you do not have the time to serve on the board, we will need a lot of help with our initial capital funds drive.

Thank you for all your support!

  1. Do you have a lawyer to draw up the articles ic the501C free. Are doing a capital campaign and how many funds afdnrrfrd to keep the camp pm board and running ? Please let us know. Thank you.

    1. We are working with a paralegal to get our paperwork done; however, we can anticipate ongoing legal needs. If there is a lawyer who is willing to help us out, we would love to talk to them. We are anticipating a bumpy journey.

      We do have a gestimate on our capital needs, but we have not received any official appraisal or offer from GSHPA. Once we get our tax ID number from the state and file with the PA Bureau of Charitable Organizations, we will be able to start soliciting money. It would not really be appropriate for us to put out a hard number at this point. You can email me at megan@friendsofgoldenpond.org if you want to talk about it.
