The Rittner Fund was established in 1983 in honor of long-time Pemi camper and legendary counselor Fred Rittner, who died of cancer that same summer.

Dedicated and Talented Athlete

Fred was a warm and caring person, dedicated and talented athlete, and a compassionate and caring coach. He continues to live on through those he touched.

Compassionate and Caring Coach

Fred provided guidance and encouragement to those around him by encouraging them to continually work toward achieving their goals on the playing field and in life in general.

Making-A-Gift

The Rittner Fund was created to honor of Fred’s memory, devotion to athletics and education, and his love of the summer camp experience. Our goals include increasing the diversity of the camp community, and identifying recipients who would otherwise be unable to attend summer camp. Achieving these goals requires obtaining generous gifts from you to offer meaningful aid to these kids. Please join our efforts by making a donation to the Rittner Fund today. Every―and any―donation will help us to achieve our goals.
