The last day!
January 05, 2017

It's the last final hours of the Cambridge Camping Holiday Charity Challenge and we are 19% towards our fundraising goal. We ask that you please  See more

THE STORY:

Cambridge Camping provides children from under-resourced circumstances so much more than a summer camp experience. We offer a diverse and supportive camp community to youngsters who often struggle with issues related to poverty and academic achievement. Because of our focus on trauma sensitive care, strong mentorship, and a strength based approach to programming, we witness meaningful friendships develop often for the first time. We see campers develop relationships with peers and counselors that really do have the power to change lives. We hear from kids as they grow up and become adults that the memories and resilience they hold close from thier years at camp have sustained them through challenging times.

We run 3 programs; Daybreak Day Camp - the only recreational program in the community designed specifically for children with social, emotional, and behavioral health needs. Cambridge Adventure Day Camp – where a child might see the ocean, hike through the woods, or learn to ride a bike for the very first time. CCAccess – a vital referral and scholarship service where we place and pay for children to attend day and overnight camps throughout New England.

Camp is magical. It can transform, heal and empower. With your help Cambridge Camping can continue our 123 year tradition of offering camp experiences to those that otherwise would not have access to summer programming.

“I struggled with academics as a kid because of learning disabilities. I moved to three different schools in four years. Being a CADC camper helped build my confidence because it’s a place where all kids are welcome and encouraged to be themselves…CADC showed me a bigger world outside of Cambridge. It’s more than a camp…it’s an experience. I credit my longevity with the camp because even as an adult, I’m still gaining confidence through the program.” - [Shakeela, a former Cambridge Adventure camper, CIT and camp director, now has her masters in psychology and works as a director in a women’s shelter].

YOU can put a smile on a child’s face by giving the gift of camp!

$650 - will support 1 camper for a week at Daybreak Day Camp: serving kids with social, emotional, and behavioral health needs, using a strength-based approach to creating conditions that allow kids to succeed.

$300 - will support 1 camper for a week at Cambridge Adventure Day Camp: providing a healthy and safe camp experience where kids discover and develop new interests, talents , independence and self-esteem. 

$125 - will send 12 of our Cambridge Adventure Day campers on a field trip to see the ocean, a museum, or the aquarium. (For many it will be their first visit!)

$75 - will provide 1 young camper with swim lessons for five weeks. She/he will build confidence while learning an important life-long skill.

Put a smile on more than one face! Please consider giving a gift to a camper in honor of or in memory of a friend, family member or loved one. Just add a note when donating.
