Newton Neighbors, Inc. is excited to start their 2024 drives with the awesome Summer Camp Scholarship program!
Did you know that many Newton school students who receive camp scholarships are unable to pay the 10-20% fees required to attend? In 2021 we launched this program to bridge the scholarship gap for these students and their families. Since then we have enabled 80 students to attend camps. We are committed to doing even more in 2024!
ANNOUNCING Summer Camp 2024!
Summer camp matters! It is a critical time for children to learn, grow, and play. We were thrilled to hear from Channon Ames of Newton Parks and Rec about the impact of our initiative on Newton students. “…Your fundraising efforts help to ensure that more kids are able to participate in our summer programs and we are truly grateful for that.”
We Need You to Make A Difference
Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 and the good news is that we are off to a great start with a $2,500 donation from a Newton-based charitable trust! It’s thrilling to see that support for the program.
For as little as $80, you can help a student enjoy a week of camp at one of Newton’s Parks and Recreation programs. You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the button below. Thank you for your generosity and ongoing support.
Camp 2024 here we come!
Any family seeking a scholarship for camp should contact their School Social Worker.
