Internship Fundraising Page 

Summit Adventure interns live and work at our base in Bass Lake, CA. We provide housing and food to our interns at no charge, but we ask that our interns help us offset some of the costs of room and board through fundraising. Although interns are not required to raise a minimum amount of money, all fundraising efforts will help keep our internship program viable. We have created a fundraising portal that makes it easy to reach out to friends and family to seek support. Interns can use the portal to set up their fundraising page and donors can use it to submit contributions.
