PARRISH – The diocese now has an official “Adopt-a-Camper” program in place for the 2018 DaySpring Summer Camp season. In past years, the Diocese of Southwest Florida has had an unofficial scholarship program; parishes and groups including the diocesan Episcopal Church Women have all donated to ensure that all youths can attend camp.
In 2017, multiple ECW groups contributed $2,535 for scholarships, of a total scholarship amount of $10,754, much of it from the diocesan budget. The ECW has also supported the cost of counselors for the summer program. The cost for a camper to attend a full session is $390; the Breakout session price is $260.
Donors may adopt a single camper, or multiple. Letters or postcards from the camper will be mailed to their donor before camp and during/after.
