Summer Camps

The Children’s Charities Foundation invested more than $69,000 in 2017 to support summer camp programs. We have found that many of our local neighbors struggle to pay for childcare and work during the summer months. We feel that camps that offer a variety of activities benefit the overall wellbeing of a child.

The National Camp Association reports that at camp, learning happens on two levels. There are basic skills that campers know they are learning through daily activities: skills like how to serve a tennis ball, how to do the backstroke, and how to make a lanyard. And then there are more advanced skills — ones campers don’t necessarily recognize, but which will last them a lifetime: emotional and social skills like how to work as part of a team, how to cope with adversity, and how to assess risks and analyze possible outcomes.
