Elmwood Day Camp
Every year Elmwood hosts our annual Project Morry Swim-A-Thon! Project Morry is an organization for under-served children. They operate a resident camp as a component of their year round program. Project Morry was founded in honor of Morry Stein who was the long time director of Camp Echo Lake.
The camp, now in its 24th season, fully scholarships 400 campers each summer. The campers are at Morry’s Camp for four weeks for four successive summers and are provided with support throughout the school year. Over 80% of Project Morry’s campers continue for five additional years and are part of a special program through their completion of high school. This program includes college and career counseling and leadership training. Project Morry takes great pride in the fact that all campers who complete the program are enrolled in college or are gainfully employed.
Thank you so much and please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

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
