CAMP IMANI is Summer Camp for 260 inner-city children ages 5-11 at PS150 and 282. Children from PS150 are from Brownsville, the poorest neighborhood left in Brooklyn. We provide fun filled activities in an enriching, secure environment. YOUR SUPPORT helps provide a full 5-day, 7-weeks of trips, athletics, dance, music, archery, and more. The Campers come from families who can't afford camp or the type of specialized instruction we Provide. Children deserve to play, build friendships and learn.
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
CAMP IMANI will offer 7 weeks of free Camp at 2 schools for 260 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
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
