About Amici Camping Charity:

Founded in 1966, Amici Camping Charity (Amici) provides funding so that kids from low-income families can go to summer camp. Amici sees camp as an opportunity for kids to make new friends, access role models, and develop leadership skills. Campers spend about 2 weeks at one of 42 partner camps, and 80% renew their funding to go to camp the next year.

In F2017, Amici sent 265 kids to camp for a total of 610 weeks. Total operating cost per kid was $4,515, a 26% increase from the F2015 cost per kid of $3,580. The change is due to significant increases in the cost of fundraising and program support.

When camps are not running, Amici Camping Charity offers Compass Leadership. Compass is a 9-month program that matches youth with Amici camp alumni. Youth and mentors meet every month for group activities, skills-based courses, and volunteer opportunities.
