With the incredible success of the Camp Champions Celebration held this past November, the ACA New England Campership Fund will be able to help support 200+ financially qualified campers this coming summer! We received requests from 100+ different ACA Accredited camps representing each New England state and all kinds of programs including day, overnight, specialty, religious, agency and independent. Participation Agreements have been received and camps are in the process of identifying their recipients, collecting information and kicking off their summers. The Campership Fund resources linked below are for ACA Accredited camps that will receive funding.
In an effort to recognize the unforeseen realities that befall families over the summer, a portion of the funds have been reserved to assist families in crisis. Jobs are lost, illness strikes and emergencies happen that no one can predict. In order to help families and camps, the Campership Committee elected to have a portion of funds available to assist in the unforeseeable, timely issues that occur during the camp season of July and August, long after campership funding is traditionally available. If you find you have a camper that falls into these parameters, feel free to contact Bette Bussel or call 781.541.6080 x11 for additional information.
