The Summer Camp program is a great way to expose girls, to a learning experience that builds independence through exposure to outdoor camping activities. Girls are selected from organizations serving low-income families and must demonstrate a financial need.
The girls full camp tuition is paid for with the generous support of donors, sponsors and the Hunter family. Each girl also receives a back pack full of toiletries, clothing and camp supplies.
In the past, we have invited sponsors to donate or provide in-kind donations for each girls back pack. For example, thanks to Ms. Jessie’s hair care products, the girls have had free hair care products during their 13 days at camp.

History or the camp program:
In June 2014, the Hunter Foundation inaugurated its first program and sponsored three (3) girls to attend a 13-day residential camp at YMCA Camp Mason located in Hardwick, New Jersey. In 2015 that number grew to 11 girls and in 2016 we hope to send 20 girls.
The cost per girl is $2,000 which covers camp tuition, food, cabin bed, additional fees for horse back riding lessons, camp supplies, and transportation.
