Camp Walt Whitman
The CWW community believes strongly in teaching children the importance of giving of oneself to help others. This is not only an important aspect of Camp Walt Whitman’s philosophy, but we believe it is important for our fortunate children to learn that there are many people less fortunate, and that helping others is part of the fabric of our social responsibility.
For each of the past 21 summers, our CWW family has participated in a fund-raiser for Project Morry, a nonprofit youth development organization which offers its students a combination of exceptional summer camp experiences, year-round academic enrichment and support, and one-on-one mentoring. To learn more about Project Morry, please visit their website at www.ProjectMorry.org.
Over the years, through the dedication of our campers and the generosity of our camp families, the Walt Whitman family has now raised over $575,000 for Project Morry.
In recognition of your camper’s participation in our 5K Fun Run this summer, we ask that you consider a donation. Your tax-deductible donation will go directly to Project Morry.

Support Project Morry
The camp community is incredibly supportive of Project Morry, particularly through Camps that Give. Private for-profit camps and the inspired kids who attend them partner with Project Morry and undertake fundraisers to help us continue our work.

Kids that Give
We love that many of the young campers who participate in Camps that Give over the summer are inspired to continue fundraising back in their communities. Through individual acts of kindness and group efforts, our youngest contributors come up with creative ways to support Project Morry, including lemonade stands, swim team events, clubs at school, and asking friends and family to donate in celebration of their bar and bat mitzvahs. It is a great way to get your community involved, have fun and make a difference
