This money will be used to bring a very fun and entertaining activity to Camp Quest Oklahoma 2013 where I have been a volunteer since its first camp in 2012. Last year I had funded an art project called "the art 4 youth" thru Kickstarter that was quite a success. This year we will be doing two projects for camp. One will be a Jackson Pollack style of drip painting session that a lot fun last year. We will also use this money to purchase model rockets for the children to paint. They can decorate his or her rocket any style from wild to mild. The money will be used to purchase 50 model rockets ranging from $9 to $20 a kit. Different skill level kits will be purchased along with the different recovery landing types; such as tumble, ribbon and parachute. The drip painting project needs the purchase of canvas, and paint and turkey basters. Yes...turkey basters was the most popular painting brush last year and I want to make sure I got plenty. Here how the funding will be spent. 50 canvas boards. $200
$300 for rocket engines and igniters. $1000 for all 50 rockets kits for a grand total $1500
Just a reminder that all of us here at Camp Quest Oklahoma are non-paid volunteers who donate our time and talents. Everyone of us has passed a nationwide background check by a private investigation firm out of Tulsa.We are dedicated to bringing a genuine camping experience that is secular by design filled with science and fun.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is obtaining all the materials needed at a great price in order to have the variety of paint colors that the children enjoy. You cannot pull this off with just the "primary colors". The neon colors were a big hit...but these paints were very pricey, around $23 a gallon can. We will need to purchase "hobby paint" for the model rockets and some small brushes so that the children can get their creativity on.
If we hit the target on money, there should be enough funds left over to purchase the ignitors and engines needed for flight. This project is two awesome camp activities rolled into one.
Last year I was able to make a lot of business contacts for my art supplies and was able to negotiate great deals to stretch my "kickstarter" dollars further.
My biggest obstacle is money. Im just not able at this time to fully fund a project like this. My business is just 2 years old and still puts financial demands on my bankroll.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
