Join us to support SCOPE Help make overnight summer camp accessible for ALL children!

15th Annual SCOPE Midwest Swim-a-thon

Since 2010, Lake of the Woods and Greenwoods campers have participated in a Swim-a-thon to Support SCOPE! Together we have raised close to $94,000, providing more than 180 camperships for children from low-income families in and around the Chicago area to attend nonprofit, ACA accredited camps in the Midwest.

These camperships have provided children from financially disadvantaged families with access to overnight camp experiences, opening them up to opportunities that will allow each child to build new dreams and brighter futures for themselves and their families.


Please help us reach our goal to provide 10 MORE camperships! Thank you!

SCOPE believes that 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. Unfortunately, these children have little or no access to summer camps and programs, resulting in an enormous achievement gap and summer learning loss. SCOPE bridges this gap by making summer camp accessible to as many deserving children as possible.
