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.

Our Impact

Partnering with the Summer Fund allowed the Boston Harbor Island Alliance to expand its reach and support community visits that might not have been possible without the partnership. In addition to bringing children and youth to visit the islands, we were also able to raise awareness about the islands among the more than 390 camp counselors, campers, and parents who may not have known about us otherwise.

When I was thirteen, MetroLacrosse changed me by giving me the opportunity to learn how to be a leader on and off the lacrosse field. I have learned how to solve problems both individually and cooperatively (like communicating in ways other than just using my voice), how to respect and learn from the people around me including my peers and mentors, how to play on a team of players who are my opponents during the season, and maybe most importantly for me, how to allow other’s voices to be heard.
