We raise funds for scholarships through donations and by raffles. This year we are raffling off a "Sparklecaster" guitar built by Steve Dikkers of Gutenberg , Iowa. You can get in on the drawing by donating 5.00 to the scholarship fund - We'll enter your name 6 times for a 25.00 donation. Donations accepted via PayPal to DreadnoughtsUnlimited@gmail.com, or you can donate at the Kamp store.

The drawing will be held during the second week of Kamp, and you do not have to be present to win. For several years, we have given away a custom built guitar from Seth Naugler of http://www.nauglerguitars.com/ - and you can get in on that drawing, too. Just specify which guitar you want when you make your donation.
