The Greenwich Campership Program is in full swing and final preparations are underway for the first sessions of camp.
The Greenwich Department of Human Services sponsors this program, which awards scholarships to children ages 5-14 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 175 children registered to attend camp this summer. There are also 33 children remaining on the waiting list that are currently not funded.
Camp fees are paid for solely by community donations. The Campership organizers are extremely grateful for the donations received to date which will help fund the children who are registered.
Any additional contributions will also 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 Department of Human Services Fund, Inc. and sent to the Dept. of Human Services, Town Hall, 101 Field Point Road, Greenwich, CT 06830. Also, please visit the Fund’s website www.greenwichdhsfund.org where you can donate online!
