Life Changing Experiences and Memories
Summer camp is a rite of passage for youth across the country. It’s where lifelong friendships are forged, hobbies become passions, and learning is solidified between academic years.
Research validates the transformative impact of summer camp on children’s social, emotional, and physical well-being. Morry’s Camp programs are designed to provide campers with a supportive space to connect with their peers and undertake personal development through challenges and safe risk-taking. Group activities strengthen skills in leadership, problem solving and communication- outcomes which are proven to contribute to long term academic and career success.
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.
As families and children send off their camp trunks in eager anticipation of summer adventures, we hope you will help us pack ours.
Thank you for your continued support. Have a great summer!

Project Morry empowers young people from under-resourced communities to envision and establish a positive future. Millions of young people in America face gaps in opportunity that prevent them from reaching their potential in their education, career and contribution to their communities. We’re changing the outcomes for young people in the tri-state area by improving opportunities and learning experiences through proven programs.

Project Morry helps our kids envision a world in which anything is possible and empowers them with the tools to make their dreams happen. In April students review Project Morry’s mission and are asked how they have exemplified our principles of teamwork, leadership, network of support, positive core values, self esteem, and personal responsibility. Your support puts our mission into action.
A completely volunteer driven event, Dare to Dream is a great way to learn more about Project Morry and to introduce the next generation of mentors and friends to the Project Morry community. Our 2016 event was attended by over 200 guests and raised almost $25,000. Help us come together to make Dare to Dream 2017 even more successful!
