Remember how much fun you had at camp as a kid? We’re excited to bring that joyful experience to young people this summer and have partnered with some of the very best nonprofits in our footprint to provide $85,000 in Summer Camp Scholarships. This years camps offer all kinds of interesting, safe and engaging activities including Scouting, STEAM education, opera, farming, theater and youth empowerment.

Grants recipients include: American Littoral Society, Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City, Boys & Girls Club of Monmouth County, Boy Scouts of America, Jersey Shore Council, Boy Scouts of America, Monmouth Council, Cape Assist, Collier Youth Services, Egg Harbor Township Police Athletic League, Girl Scouts of Central and Southern New Jersey, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore, Grunin Center at Ocean County College, Levoy Theatre, Millville Development Corporation, New Jersey Audubon Nature Center of Cape May, Ocean City Arts Center, Ocean County YMCA, Ocean Partnership for Children, The Southwest Council, St. Francis Center, United Way of Monmouth & Ocean Counties and The Community YMCA.
