Summer Camp Changes Lives
Project Morry was founded to bring the life changing benefits of summer camp to youth in under-resourced communities year round. Project Morry provides a 4 week sleepaway camp, through Morry’s Camp, giving campers a supportive space to connect with their peers and undertake personal and academic development through challenges and safe risk-taking.
Because of your support, nearly 400 Project Morry youth are able to attend Morry’s Camp each summer. This is a unique and life changing experience for our kids, many of whom do not have a family tradition of summer camp and would not be able to afford it without Project Morry.
Summer camp is a critical component of bridging the opportunity gap. More than half the academic gap for low-income youth can be attributed to unequal access to organized learning opportunities during the summer and after school. Project Morry provides a variety of programs in educational enrichment, leadership development, and problem solving skills- outcomes which are proven to contribute to long term academic and career success.
Morry’s Camp also gives our kids a chance to just be kids. They learn to swim, make new friends, spend time outside, and unplug. All of these support the transformative impact of summer camp on children’s social, emotional, and physical well-being.
As families and children send off their camp trunks in eager anticipation of summer adventures, help us pack ours.
Thank you for your continued support. Have a great summer!
