This year’s summer camp is more important than ever before. We will make sure our kids have a great summer — whether camp is face-to-face or virtual. We’re extending camp – Artscape 2020 — to five weeks this summer to help our campers keep up academically and to provide a safe place to talk about their experiences and concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year there will be an increased academic focus without sacrificing the fun aspects of camp like music, dance and visual art.
Fifty young people, age 5-18, will attend our camp again this year. Most attend our out-of-school time program during the school year. All are from very low income families and most live in poverty. The cost per camper of $300 per week is provided by scholarships from generous donors.
Planned dates of camp are June 8th – 26th (3 weeks) and July 6th – 17th (2 weeks). Registration will be opening soon. Anyone wishing to volunteer should contact Brianna at (504) 947-2121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
