150 Campers Will Have the Chance to Attend Camp in the Coming Weeks and Months!!

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 150 financially qualified campers this upcoming summer!  We received requests from 92 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.  If you are one of this year’s participating camps and need camper application forms or any of the Campership Fund resources, you can find them on our site here.

In an effort to recognize the unforeseen realities that befall some 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 during the summer you find you have a camper from a family in this type of crisis, feel free to contact Jenny Clark or call 781-541-6080 for additional information.
