Free Summer Camp! Help keep it free!

Each summer UrbanPromise offers 6 weeks of FREE summer day camp in the underserved, under-resourced areas in Wilmington. We are expecting camps to be at capacity (about 300 children and youth), a full team of StreetLeaders (30 in total), and college interns fromacross the country and around the world (about 20 – 25). Our camps run from 9 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon.  We believe our camps are not only more affordable than anything else around, but they are the best quality.

In order to make these camps great, once again, we need the help of many people who care about children and teens in the city. The list below shows how you, or your organization can sign up to provide a few basic supplies (keeping it simple…we have bundled supplies together – your group can just focus on getting us all of the duct tape or all of the glue that we need.)

Help is also needed for meals for interns and StreetLeaders at various dates and times.  Contact Lori at lori@urbanpromise.org for details.

Please contact Julia at julia@urbanpromise.org if you are able to donate these supplies!

Or donate financially to support a child or StreetLeader, sponsor the bus for a field trip or sponsor the a whole camp!
