Creating a culture of philanthropy at camp provides the entire camp community with an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than yourself. With a captive camp-passionate audience, camps create philanthropic opportunities that fit within their existing programs to create initiatives that help to provide the gift of summer camp through SCOPE.
SCOPE partners with camps to engage, educate and activate their campers, staff, and camp families to help less fortunate children gain access to similar camp experiences their camp provides.
SCOPE Philanthropic Camp
of the Year
This prestigious annual recognition is given to one summer camp in celebration of their generous commitment to SCOPE. The SCOPE Board of Directors nominates and votes on a camp whose contributions to SCOPE throughout the year are influential beyond the borders of summer.
Throughout the year we encourage our camp community to recognize and embrace the importance of giving back to others. Our campers and staff understand the impact of camp and are inspired to support SCOPE!
