It’s Camp Time Again!
Did you go to camp as a child? Then you understand how important this program is to kids! Some are low income, others homeless or at risk.
For a week of either day or resident camp, children are given an opportunity that many of us often take for granted. They leave their homes and hardships behind, to try new things, meet new people, and develop positive self images, social and leadership skills. They come back refreshed and ready to tackle the future ahead of them!
Burbank Coordinating Council has sponsored a Campership Program since 1936, which allows children (aged 7-18), from Burbank Schools, to attend a week at resident or day-camp. All families meet federal low income guidelines. They are required to provide proof of income to determine eligibility. The families contribute $10 for day-camp or $25 for a resident camp.
With our discounts, your gift of $250 will send a child to camp or send several at $250 each!
We use all accredited camps including: Golden State Gymnastics, YMCA, Generation DCD, Camp Edwards, Forest Home and more. We also use an LGBTQ leadership camp called Brave Trails!
Children return and send us thank you letters telling us what a “special time” they had and how they “feel better about themselves” from the experience. They come back with GREAT BIG SMILES and good memories to last a lifetime!
We have a unique fund raising opportunity called Coins for Campers (bottles to collect coins for our program). We can speak at your organization and bring bottles along. Call us for details. Churches, schools, businesses, and city offices are collecting coins to help the Campership program! Join the fun!
Please help us meet our goal to send 120 deserving youngsters attend camp. As a 501 (c) 3, your donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Tax ID number is 95-6116051, and remember, 100% of your money goes directly to the camps.
