Summer camp deals: Try online auction websites!

We’re always looking for a good summer camp deal.  Many camps donate weeks of camps to local schools and other organizations for auction fundraisers.  It’s great publicity for the camps, a good fundraiser for the schools and the auction-goers can often get a great deal.

Now that many schools are putting their silent auctions online with websites like Bidding For Good, some of these auction items can be available to the general public.

You’ll need to do your own search for up-to-date deals, but take a look at some recent camp auctions found by searching for “summer camps” on
