Can You Help Social Services Clear the Waitlist for Summer Camperships?

aquarium summer campGreenwich Campership Program in need of funds for remaining children on the waiting list

The Greenwich Campership Program is in full swing and final preparations are underway for the first sessions of camp. The Greenwich Department of Social Services sponsors this program, which awards scholarships to children age 4-14 to local day camps and some sleep away camps in Connecticut, many of which offer discounts and save spaces for children attending through our program. The Greenwich Salvation Army also provides a generous allocation.

Presently there are 211 children registered to attend camp this summer. There are also over 30 children remaining on the waiting list that are currently not funded. Camp fees are paid for solely by community donations. We are extremely grateful for the donations received to date which will fund the children who are registered. However, any additional contributions will help the children who are waiting to be offered a camp session.

Campers can be sponsored at a rate of $400 for a two week session or $525 for three weeks. Any amount is gratefully accepted, with checks made out to The Greenwich Campership Fund. For further information, please contact Alison Brush at 203-622-3715.
