Summer Fund Fact

As part of the Summer Fund, in 2017 the Homeless Campership Fund supported 25 camp and shelter partners enabling families in homeless shelters and those facing housing insecurities free access for over 1300 summer camp slots for this at-risk youth population.

I am writing to let you know that my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her camp experience last week! Jane is a “slow-to-warm-up” kind of child, so it was especially wonderful to see her positively beaming at the end of each day and telling us all about her camp experiences, singing songs, and showing us her projects each evening. My husband and I are thankful to her counselors and to all of the staff for making it such a great week for her!
