Challenge

With Summer Day Camps costing up to $1000 a week, children of low-income families often spend their summers in front of a TV, video games or on the streets. Elementary age children suffer most, as working parents keep them indoors and they miss opportunities to expand their out-of-school experiences, enjoy friends and learn to work in groups. Access to expensive programs such as our performing arts, karate, archery, and Steel Pan Band are not affordable & often unavailable in their school

Solution

CAMP IMANI will offer 7 weeks of free Camp at 2 schools for 250 children in order to provide a safe fun filled environment & improve their outlook on life. Campers will have access to summer experiences that many wealthy children take for granted. Instead of sitting at home they will be able to spend their summer making friends, exploring science and the world around them, getting tutoring if needed, and learning new and engaging skills in music, dance, and more from our professional instructors

Long-Term Impact

Studies have shown that a happy child is more likely to succeed, have high self-esteem, develop their leadership abilities and be more willing to help others. By sharing in arts & recreational activities at our Camp, children will perform better in school and develop a strong sense of community that will positively contribute to their home lives and strengthen their interactions with others. CAMP IMANI believes that all children can succeed if given access to appropriate skills and opportunities
