In 2016, thanks to the generosity of parents, individuals, foundations, companies, civic organizations and religions organizations, we were able to distribute $42,168.00 in camperships to 168 girls throughout Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.
When a parent or guardian registers their daughter for summer camp, GSSNE provides them with the opportunity to make a donation to the campership fund. Girls who want to attend Girl Scout summer camp, but cannot afford to do so, can apply for financial aid from this Campership Fund. Families applying for financial aid must pay the $35 per session deposit and most families who receive financial aid receive about 50% of the total cost.
By donating to the 2017 Campership Fund, you can help girls develop the leadership and confidence-building skills of Girl Scout Camp. Help us reach our 2016 Campership goal and help more girls attend camp this summer!
