Summer Camp Application Program
The application window for 2023 Summer Camp Program will close January 31, 2023. We have not yet determined whether a summer camp program will run in 2024 though it is very likely we will run a program in 2024. Any 2024 program information made available, will post to this page by November 1, 2023.
Summer camp operations may exclusively receive support from the foundation through this program. Our staff is not permitted to help organizations fill out the summer camp application or review drafts of your application, please do not make a request that they assist you in completing the summer camp application. Our Summer Camp Program is particularly interested in over-night camps focused on children who are unable to attend most other camps due to special needs, such as a camp specialized for children who received a heart transplant. We are also looking for programming that promotes STEM, reduces summer learning loss by providing high-quality learning instruction (particularly in math) by trained staff and have a low camper to counselor ratio, or incorporates academic enrichment activities as a part of the camp programming to reduce summer learning loss. We will only consider supporting camps located in Louisiana or Mississippi. This program is competitive.
Applicants must be a non-profit organization, school, non-governmental agency, CBO or religious organization in good standing with the IRS, which has been operating for three years or more in Louisiana and Mississippi.Timeline:
