With climate change and increasing gun violence, long, hot summers are becoming the norm for too many urban youth. And as the need grows the resources dwindle. Most of the camps dedicated to serving underprivileged youth have closed including our own beloved University Camps and Philadelphia’s Historic Camp William Penn.
We need your help to reach our goal of doubling the number of young people we can get into the great outdoors by 2024
$1,000 - Your gift of 1,000 will cover the cost of a residential camp experience for multiple kids.
$500 - Your gift of $500 will open the door to a day camp experience for kids who otherwise will never have a chance to attend.
$100 - Your gift of $100 will provide an overnight camp retreat experience that can ignite an appreciation for the outdoors.
$50 - Your gift of $50 will help cover the cost of supplies and materials that are central to the camping experience.
