Summer Camp Application Program
Staff will be working remotely until further notice. Decision letters for Summer Camps are in the mail. Further instruction will be provided if your summer camp was approved.
The Summer Camp Application Program is particularly focused on the alleviation of human suffering and to the extent a summer camp program services 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, advanced learning and leadership, provides tuition assistance to children from under-performing schools or impoverished communities, 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.
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:
