Greenwich Campership Program: 31 children remain on the wait list

The Greenwich Campership Program has begun sending children to the first sessions of camp.

Many generous donations have been received, but the Dept of Human Services seeks to help the 31 children remaining on the waiting list.

The Greenwich Department of Human 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.

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,” said Alison Brush in a release. “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 and sent to the Dept. of Human Services, Town Hall, 101 Field Point Road, Greenwich, CT 068030.
