Agency Summer Camps
Agency camps are something quite special - not every child is able or fortunate enough to go to camp and Agency camps are all about changing the game and levelling the field.
Agency camps in America are run by not-for-profit organisations. The camps are incredibly inspiring. They take children, often from underprivileged backgrounds and the inner cities, and provide them with the opportunity to escape their everyday, be cared for and to have fun at summer camp no matter their background.
With the funding from organisations like the YMCA, JCC or the 4-H Club - the campers come to camp for various lengths of time, from just one week or for the full summer season as offered by most private, traditional camps.
Agency camps are definitely a feel good environment - we feel good even just talking about Agency Camps right now.
What to Expect
An opportunity to provide an amazing summer to children from underprivileged and disadvantaged backgrounds. At the end of it all you'll be wiser, braver and a little less bothered about the more superficial things in life.
Embrace your inner Bear Grylls and throw yourself into the rustic outdoors. The ability to make the most of what you’ve got and have fun with it is an enormous advantage.
What Not to Expect
Don’t expect the children too have much experience in diverse activities. A summer at camp is not a given for many of the children, so this may be their first time at some of the activities on offer.
The rewarding feeling of providing an unforgettable summer for the campers.
