To subsidise the camp, teachers and year 11 students held some activities to raise funds, part of which was contributed to Siriraj Hospital to be used as expenses on its Nawamintarabopit Building project initiated to commemorate the 70th anniversary of His Majesty the King's accession to the throne. Fund-raising activities held by students included selling food during lunch break, doing street performances on weekends at Siam Square's Gateway, selling pre-owned articles at the Secondary campus, receiving education-related Phapa offerings, selling recyclable plastic bottles on Fridays, requesting sponsorships from various institutes, selling tee shirts and polo shirts as well as accepting donations such as money, articles, learning materials and other utilities.
