Granting priorities are to assist children in financial need attending camp in Niagara, or to assist children with special needs and in financial need and their caregiver to attend camp.

The Summer Camp program will help Niagara children in financial need participate in a variety of camping and recreation experiences. An opportunity to go to summer camp or be involved in a neighborhood activity not only helps children develop new skills, make new friends, and raise their self esteem, it also gives them the chance to get their hands dirty and have lots of fun.
