What does summer mean to you?

Our summer camps provide a safe and structured environment with caring adult mentors. In a world that often feels chaotic and scary, our staff is able to promise these children a stable and reliable port in the storm. But we need your assistance to ensure that every child that needs our camps has the chance to attend.
