This summer marks the 39th Annual Rittner Run, benefiting The Fred Rittner Pemi Campership Fund.  This initiative began in 1983 in honor of long-time Pemi camper and legendary counselor Fred Rittner who died of cancer that same summer.  The goals of the Rittner Fund include increasing the overall diversity of the camp community and identifying recipients who would otherwise be unable to attend summer camp.  To date, we have granted over 300 camp scholarships in Fred’s memory to youths from around the country and the far corners of the globe.  In recent summers, the Rittner Fund has provided tuition aid in excess of $60,000 to more than 32 deserving campers!
