It’s Camp Time Again!
Even in Covid times, we know that children need to share, grow, learn and have fun, while staying safe! 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.
Please note camps will have COVID protocols in place to protect the kids who are in attendance.
Burbank Coordinating Council has provided a Campership Program since 1936, which allows children, ages 6-18, to attend one week of resident or day-camp. All families must meet federal low-income guidelines and are required to provide proof of income to determine eligibility. Each family is asked to contribute $10 for day-camp or $25 for a resident camp.
With the discounts BCC negotiates with each camp, your gift of $250 will send one child to camp, $500 will send 2 children to camp and so on.
We partner with camps such as, Golden State Gymnastics, YMCA, Generation DCD, Camp Edwards, Forest Home, and an LGBTQ leadership camp called Brave Trails.
We love it when children return from their camp experiences 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!
