Chi Camp Fund
Organized by: Caitlin Anne
This past weekend, I partook in the potentially dreadful activity of parent-teacher conferences. These conferences provide me with my final official contact with parents until the next school year. Throughout these conversations, I discovered how many of my students, and their siblings, were struggling to have access to social and educational summer activities. As I spoke with parents I pitched summer camps for students. Despite the majority of my students qualifying for free or reduced lunch, and having many camp scholarship options, many of these financial resources only covered a portion of camps, and left families with a balance of $100 or more. While families were extremely interested, the financial component made this a non-option for many of my students.
It is my goal, with your help, to raise money to cover the cost of summer camps for students.
100% of the money raised will go toward providing students with scholarships to attend a summer camp of their choosing. Chicago has so many incredible summer options that I would love my students to be able to access.
