DONATE NOW - Thank You!
University Youth Programs sets aside a limited amount of funding and raises funds from the community to provide assistance for students who demonstrate genuine financial need for participation in our summer camps.
At University Youth & Community Programs, we believe every child deserves camp. The mission of our Campership program is to enable as many children as possible to have a YP Camp experience by providing assistance to families with demonstrated financial need. Today, through donations from folks like you, we are able to support many deserving children who attend camp.
We accept donations year round; and check back later for November Campership Drive 2018 Information!
The camperships are awarded in a competitive round, for which the deadline this year is February 28. Applications are collected until the deadline. After funding is distributed in early March, an interest list is collected for any additional funding that becomes available.
