Greenwich Campership Program in need of funds

The Greenwich Campership Program is in full swing and final preparations are underway for the first sessions of camp. The Greenwich Department of Human Services sponsors this program, which awards scholarships to children age 4-14 to local day camps and some sleep away camps in Connecticut, many of which offer discounts and save spaces for children attending through the program. The Greenwich Salvation Army also provides a generous allocation.

Presently there are 202 children registered to attend camp this summer. There also are more than 50 children remaining on the waiting list that currently are not funded. Camp fees are paid for solely by community donations.

“We are extremely grateful for the donations received to date which will fund the children who are registered,” according to the Department of Human Services. “However, any additional contributions will help the children who are waiting to be offered a camp session.”

Campers may be sponsored at a rate of $400 for a two week session or $525 for three weeks. Any amount will be accepted, with checks made out to The Greenwich Campership Fund and sent to the Dept. of Human Services, Town Hall, 101 Field Point Road, Greenwich, CT 068030.
