We need our Lodge community more than ever. Please support Singing Eagle this season.
Dear SEL Family,
We are more grateful than ever for the strength and resilience of our Lodge community in the last two years. Despite the economic and emotional hardships in 2020, Eaglets came together that year to provide a free, virtual SEL experience for campers. In 2021 we were once again able to run a real, not-virtual, SEL at Camp Deerwood. Because of lingering pandemic-related constraints, we had to shorten camp to one week, but familiar events like Soccer Meet, Volleyball Meet, Council Fires, Chapel, and Banquet were back, and the girls once again made or renewed friendships to last a lifetime. In 2022 we will return to our traditional two-week camp format.
Singing Eagle Lodge--virtual or in-person--simply wouldn't happen without the countless hours our councillors spend volunteering, and without donations from our community. If you're in a position to do so, please consider a year-end donation to Singing Eagle Lodge. Your support ensures SEL will remain a place for girls to grow and thrive in the years to come. Any gift size is appreciated, from $10 to the cost of a full summer scholarship ($2,000). Through our partnership with Donorbox you can now make a monthly recurring donation.
In recent years we’ve put ALL financial contributions into the Scholarship Fund. But the Covid summer of 2020, when we had no income, showed us we might need to use donated funds to cover operating expenses. On this donation form, you can now choose where your donation should go: Selecting “Scholarship Fund” means your donation will go toward providing scholarships to girls who could not otherwise attend SEL. Choosing “Where Most Needed” means your donation can be used where it can best give Singing Eagle the flexibility to survive and flourish in the future.
Singing Eagle Lodge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Gifts are tax-deductible, and one hundred percent of your donation will be used as you designate on this form. If you prefer to make a contribution by check, please send to:

Some of my happiest memories are from summers at SEL... and it's where I met my best friend, almost 20 years ago now! Sending so much love to all my pines (and birches...!)
