Like many schools across the Country, Foster Elementary School in California, The Fresh Creek School in New York and Napier Elementary in Tennessee have faced severe budget cuts. One result of these cuts was the elimination of summer school and any additional summer programming once offered to the students. WME | IMG employees recognized the need to provide these children with enrichment activities during the summer season and created Camp Summer Eagle, Camp Summer Lion and Camp Summer Bear.
WME | IMG employees work with school and city leaders to create a curriculum in reading, arts and physical activity. Saturdays during the summer, students gather to take part in a series of camp games, songs and arts activities. Additionally, volunteers work with students to improve their reading skills and prepare them for the school year to come in fun and innovative ways. Each Summer Camp strives to give students who would normally have nothing to do during the summer a chance to create, learn and build memories that will last a lifetime!

About WME | IMG Foundation
Philanthropy is an integral part of WME | IMG’s corporate culture and, since its inception, the mission of our Foundation has been to enhance the lives of children and families in the communities surrounding where we live and work by promoting the arts and improving education for disadvantaged students.
In an effort to effect tangible change, we have partnered with traditional public schools in Compton, Brooklyn, Nashville and London and support each through programming grants to nonprofit organizations that deliver expert services (primarily arts-based, but we have also funded counseling services and wellness programs), mentorships, summer camps, facility improvement projects and talent client involvement.
