AcosnptercibiaultTeCHdaAmtoNptKehrYesOhAiUnpnFtoKunuedhv.enrEynodnoewwehdo A Special Remembrance The Ann Kuhn Endowed Campership Fund Ann Kuhn was born and raised in Indianapolis, the youngest of four children. She first arrived at Cheley Colorado Camps in 1974 in Lower Chipeta. Beloved by campers and counselors alike, Ann had a warm smile and wonderful laugh. Her spirit and energy connected a large group of former campers who are still sharing in the ways that Ann brought them together, creating a lifetime of friendship. Ann’s family and friends came together in 2019 to fund an endowed campership in her memory. This fund will send a female camper to one of our associate camps every summer to experience the joys of camp and friendship as Ann did. Her friends and family are honored to provide such a wonderful opportunity to a camper in Ann’s memory. “My brothers and I have been so touched by the friends our sister loved over 40 years ago. Cheley Camps brought together wonderful girls that Annie cherished. Cheley was a very important part of Annie’s life and we can’t believe that they have never forgotten their 15-year-old friend.” - Holly Kuhn Lee If you are interested in establishing a fund similar to the Ann Kuhn Endowed Campership Fund, contact us today at 720.981.2532 or visit our website at

A Year of Celebration 2019-2020: A Pivotal Time for the John Austin Cheley Foundation This year marked the 30th anniversary of the John Austin Cheley Foundation and it has been a year of celebration! We marked important milestones in our organizational history and highlighted many wonderful people and their great work over the last 30 years that have made us who we are today. Through small local events, a 30th Anniversary Video History series, and a special edition of our newsletter we reconnected, shared memories, and celebrated the power of camp. Thirty years after our founding, our roots and purpose continue to shape and guide us. Staying true to those roots, we underwent an et“nhIjowaytaeysdocumrusyseshneetlf.dTw-whiTtahhonemtknhayceosaaumDcfoptomivrwiiatnalilegstsucheiaanznttcyheoeluecdhaabrevuept adI hcokanaveeg.”e organizational rebranding to create an exciting new identity. We believe this new identity will convey the During our 2019-2020 fiscal year we received the long-term significance of a high-quality summer camp greatest total donor contributions in any 12-month experience and position us to attract the necessary period in our history - definitely worthy of celebration! support to increase our overall impact. Though definitely not something we want to celebrate, the unexpected COVID-19 crisis presented us with an opportunity to adjust how we allocate resources to our Campership Program. This will allow us greater security and clearer planning for the distribution of these critical program resources next year and into the future, something that we have been aspiring to achieve since the early years of our organization. “yInoiumswytroweumillddeernsedtaodcurhes!alEymliasspeIpldor-ievdEecnlsii’asthetaeeHnrdtaaiarccrnitipsdivaiwtteyilbtl hboexelauenvsdeeldtthowewischehilecyc.h”k This year we would have been celebrating our 30th summer facilitating the growth and development of young people from all across the United States via our Campership Program. We issued awards to over 100 boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 17, but sadly, because of COVID-19, none were able to attend camp. We faced a summer unlike any other in our 30-year history and, like so many others, we had to adjust.

A Summer of Adjustment How We Supported Our Kids 59 106 To ensure that the summer was not a bust and to provide VIRTUAL ACTIVITY enrichment and a sense of community, we created a CAMP-TO-CAMP BOXES summer program for our campers centered around a care package. Every one of our 2020 campers received HIKERS DISTRIBUTED a summer care package that included an activity box full of fun items and access to “how-to” videos for camp $38,545 4,682 activities, crafts, and sports encouraging them to spend time outside and be active. A step counter enabled our IN SUMMER ACTIVITY kids to participate in a 3,367-mile virtual Camp-to-Camp SUPPORT MILES Hike from Maine to Colorado, with stops at each of our CHECKS associate camps along the way including virtual campfires ISSUED LOGGED hosted by our camps. How We Supported Our Families Recognizing that the cancellation of camp would have unintended and challenging consequences for the families of the kids we serve, we responded with some financial support according to each family’s level of household income. Our Board authorized a one-time Summer Support Check for each of our campership families to alleviate some of the unanticipated costs of feeding and providing care for their child(ren) for the four weeks that they were supposed to be at camp. “My kids just opened their boxes and were completely blown away! What a treat and what a generous gift box! We are so blessed to have you all in our lives! We also received a check which brought me to tears to know how much you all care! We are beyond blown away! My biggest thank you and appreciation is for putting a smile on my kids’ faces!!” – Cyndi Amstutz, parent of Allison and Ryan A Commitment to Our Kids We are dedicated to sending all of the kids who missed out on a summer campership because of COVID-19 to camp in the summer of 2021. With your support, we can provide a powerful summer of growth for kids when they may need it more than ever before.

2020 Volunteer of the Year: Jenn Tipton Jenn Tipton has been a trustee since 2014. When plans for camp changed this summer, Jenn stepped in and dedicated countless hours helping to create a virtual program for our campers and providing an activity box for them that helped them to learn and grow. Thank you for everything, Jenn! “I believe that the Foundation’s commitment to helping build confidence, character, grit and soul - for a lifetime - reaches well beyond each camper we get to know and winds its way deep into their families and communities. If only every child could experience the challenging, joyful, awesome experience of attending a fantastic wilderness camp, our world would be changed for the better.” - Jenn Tipton FormeVriPcerTo-rCugrshataemires2SC0ino18cm-ePm2r0iet1st4eenetChair A Thousand Summers For the John Austin Cheley Foundation, the past 30 years have brought new partnerships, new initiatives, new definitions of ‘success’, and a vision to serve many more young people in the future.
