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.

Random Quote

Shelter life is difficult for children, especially during the summer when school is out. At camp, this 9-year-old boy played tennis, swam, and made friends with other children his own age. We are grateful we could offer him a fun and stimulating opportunity to spend time outside of the shelter this summer.
