Summer Fund Fact

Each year, between 10,000-12,000 campers enjoy as many as 300 free field trips, on-site cultural activities, and other arts and historical experiences.

Our Impact

Cultural Day enables us to reach many camp groups who would have difficulty participating in our arts programming without the Summer Fund’s financial assistance. It also allows us to offer additional weekday show programming over the summer, keeping our staffing and artist roster consistent, active, and productive in the summer months. With the Summer Fund’s help, our outreach is more extensive, and our organization is able to operate at full capacity through summer, when otherwise it would not.

Our mission is to provide stewardship of the land and resources and to offer educational experiences. The Summer Fund gives campers the opportunity to enjoy and learn about nature and teambuilding activities. It is a great way to get inner city camps and children to become stewards of the land.
