Arizona Community Foundation Funds Camp Scholarship

Grants enables 25 underserved children to attend Children’s Museum of Phoenix summer camp.

The Summer Youth Program Fund, a component of the Arizona Community Foundation, has awarded a grant to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix. The grant will fund the museum’s Summer Camp Scholarship program, providing a week of camp experiences to more than 25 underserved children in the community.

The Children’s Museum of Phoenix offers eight weeks of summer camp experiences June 5 through July 28. Four themed weeks are offered in June, which are repeated in july. This year’s themes include Pawsome Pets, Little Authors, Culinary Kids and Moonwalkers. This is the third year the museum is offering a summer camp program. Each week of camp holds 40 campers. Currently the first week of camp, June 5 through June 9, is sold out.

Summer camps at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix have a goal to offer unique opportunities for children to take risks, grow outside of their comfort zone, improve self-confidence, independence and self-esteem, and practice social skills.

Established in 1978, the Arizona Community Foundation is a statewide philanthropic entity supported by thousands of Arizonans. Last year, ACF and its affiliates awarded more than $40 million in grants and scholarships, funding projects of some 3,000 nonprofit organizations, schools and government agencies.
