It’s Time to Apply for Summer Camp Grants – Deadline is Feb. 15, 2021January 3, 2021
Remember how much fun you had at camp as a kid? We’re super excited to bring that life-changing experience to young people this summer. We want to partner with the very best nonprofits in our footprint to provide $75,000 in Summer Camp Scholarships.
Past recipients have offered all kinds of fun, safe (in-person and virtual), and engaging activities including Scouting, farming, theater and youth empowerment. If your organization is selected to receive a Summer Camp Grant, then you get to award up to $250 to cover the cost of a camp experience for a local kid. How cool is that?
