Support Our Programs

Each summer we propose to serve 600+ children living in foster care between the ages of seven and sixteen whose lives have been interrupted by placement into temporary care. With a professional staff that includes clinicians, family advocates, part-time summer staff, interning graduate students and volunteers, we make sure our campers acquire needed skills and feel more love and support than they have ever felt before. Your continued support is appreciated by us all!
