CWES gratefully accepts cash gifts to our Endowment, a permanent fund that generates spendable interest to support education and training programs. With a donation to our Endowment, your generosity is the gift that keeps on giving. If 1,000 people per year send us $20 each, we can grow the endowment by $20,000 annually. Because we only spend the interest, your gift will help support CWES programs indefinitely. Larger donations are also welcomed.

If you are interested in supporting our education and training programs with a donation, gifts may be made payable to "UWSP Foundation CWES Endowment 3629" and sent to the UWSP Foundation, 2100 Main Street, Suite 212, Stevens Point, WI 54481. Credit card gifts are accepted online at or by phone at 1-800-858-5267. Please specify the gift for "CWES Endowment 3629".  Gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law. Bequests and other planned gifts are also appreciated.

Please feel free to contact Scott Johnson, the Director, if you have any questions.

an interpretive panel
Numerous interpretive panels, including this of of Sunset Lake, were donated by the Central Wisconsin Chapter of the Safari Club International in 2007.
The firebowl
The Firebowl, a timeless gathering place for campfires and making memories, received a much needed facelift with new and expanded seating, thanks to the volunteer efforts of an Eagle Scout project.

In 2010 we received a karaoke machine from Dennis and Marcia Yockers.  We are excited for all the potential songs and performances this machine will offer us at summer camp!
