Fall 2014
Goodbye, Camp Season!
This summer we hosted nine weeks of camp and nearly 500 campers. It was another camp season full of fishing, canoeing, songs, cheers, face painting, bonfires and too many smiles to possibly count. We would like to thank everyone who helped make it possible - donors, partners, volunteers and staff - and we can't wait to do it all again next year. 

All our camps and programs are made possible thanks to the financial generosity of our donors. Please consider making a donation today
A Leader in Training, Anthony's Story
We may have hosted 500 campers, but we also welcomed dozens of volunteers, staff members, Leaders in Training and Junior Counselors. These selfless people also benefit from the transformative experience that is camp. Anthony is one such Leader in Training. Read his story, and learn more about the Leader in Training program, on our website.

Camp Expansion!
Camp True Colors, New York is now Camp True Colors, Northeast! This name change coincides with program staff actively recruiting campers for this important and unique camp from throughout the northeast United States, not just New York City. This lets us serve more youth in need of our program. Here's a fun picture from last month's session of Camp True Colors, Northeast!
