From the Director

As I'm sure you can understand, deciding which children will be granted a Summer Camp scholarship is a task we take seriously. While we would like to have the funding to grant every request, we do not expect to be able to do so. As the program grows, we will be able to fund more requests.
~ Brian Collar, Executive Director

- An American serving or having served in the US Military or in an occupation considered a First Responder.

The Applicant:
