2019 Campership Program
The Greenwich Campership Program makes it possible for children from low income Greenwich families to enjoy a memorable and fun-filled experience at summer camp. Full and partial scholarships are available to many local day camps, as well as, a few sleep-away camps in Connecticut. Understanding the financial challenges faced by low income families, most camps provide discounted rates.
2019 Greenwich Youth Conservation Program
For 40 years, our town parks and beaches have benefitted tremendously from the hard work of 14- and 15-year-olds who choose to spend part of their summer with the GYCP.
Each year, well over 150 young teens apply for our “earn and learn” program because it gives them an opportunity to gain valuable job skills and make an impact in their community. Last year, a favorite program feature was a talk on building a resume and marketable job skills given by Family Centers. Overall, a remarkable 98% said their experience as a GYCP team member was positive!
