Summer camp reinforces what children learn in school and enhances overall academic learning; camp allows children to grow socially, emotionally, and physically while providing them with meaningful and fun interactions with children and excellent adult role models.
Well-designed summer camps are educational programs that offer artistic, musical, and athletic experiences, adventurous outdoor programs, and a safe environment. Trained staff and camp professionals are educators who support, encourage, and teach campers.
Summer camp is an essential component of the year-round educational continuum and plays a critical role in helping children from underserved communities to thrive.
Children who receive SCOPE camperships come from low-income families and the chance to attend summer camp is a unique opportunity that their parents could not otherwise afford. Families work directly with the SCOPE partner camps to enroll their children – there is no specific ‘SCOPE Camp.’
