Are you looking for ways to support our programs at The Barton Center? We just started another 30-day campaign with Express Feedback for Good™. Now through October 12th you can personally create up to $150 of value for camp by providing 75 opinions for products and businesses already familiar to you! It only takes a minute to sign up and then you pick a company from 1,500+ options and share your opinion. Each opinion you share creates $2 for camp, and you can share up to 75 opinions. It’s that easy! Once you’ve completed all 75 surveys, forward your completion email to events@bartoncenter.org to be entered for a chance to win weekly prizes including gift cards for Amazon and Dave & Buster’s. Additionally, two grand prizes—each a $300 campership for a future program—will be drawn at the end of the month! Please share the link with family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers as there is no limit to the number of participants who can support Barton! Every little bit helps! Click here to get started, and please be sure to choose The Barton Center as your camp to support.

Join us in person or from your location to walk in support of children with type 1 diabetes and The Barton Center. There is no registration fee as we want our participants to focus on fundraising. Raise money to support The Barton Center or your camper’s camp fee for 2022. Check-in and parking will be at Cardinal Ridge at Four Winds Farm located at 31 Ennis Road in North Oxford, just across the street from Barton’s administrative office.

Every person who raises at least $100 will receive a t-shirt. Click here to register for the event and set up your fundraising page.

We have been working extremely hard to open camp safely this summer. However, there are many circumstances beyond our control that we cannot overcome. Sadly, I am writing with the same heavy heart and great sadness that I did last year, although this year seems to sting a bit more as I am sure you will agree. At our recent board of trustees meeting, we voted to cancel overnight camps. This was not an easy decision. Please click here for more details.
