Summer Camp Assistance Program
Each year T&E Care funds are used to support students who want to attend a week or two of summer camp, but the families can’t cover all or part of the tuition. We offer up to $275 towards the tuition cost, per child. Our website lists lots of local camp suggestions, but the families are allowed to choose any camp of interest – from our list or from any list! This has been a great way to help our local kids have some extra special fun during the long and hot Philadelphia summers! If a student is going to a local camp and needs a ride for a week or two, then volunteers are contacted to help out. (All volunteer drivers need child clearances.)
If you have any information about good camps to put on our list, good scholarships that we can add to our sponsorship list, or if you’d be willing to be a driver on our list, then please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome donations toward this important program.
If you are a family who could use this assistance, please check out our Camp Assistance Page.
SUMMER CAMP RESULTS 2017
Once again it was an amazing summer with our summer camp program. We supported 75 students (from 49 different families) at 37 different area camps! Lots of soccer, basketball, swimming, cooking, and drawing was enjoyed this summer. We paid over $13,600 to support 62 of the kids, and 13 received scholarships to some camps.
We send a special thanks to the following camps for offering great scholarships, valuing over $3300:
Sky High Basketball
Center on Central
Home Cooked (discount)
Thanks again to the Tyler Hedges grant for helping with $4450 towards the funding of this program, the Beaumont Elementary PTO for hosting a fund raiser covering $1350 of the cost, and to a $250 donation from the Paoli Village Shoppes. We have always VERY MUCH appreciated all this support. And a HUGE thanks to Charu Gandhi, Allyson Hotz, Kristen Becket, Story Picard, and Mary Saylor for all their efforts coordinating the camp payments and scholarships with the families. What a great crew! And last but never least – thanks to Cindy Gilroy for organizing the drivers for the few kids that needed this assistance – and to Stacy Stone, Toni Linder, Bill Bellew, and John Novak for their willingness to drive! Giving up days to offer this support is the most amazing donation of all!
