Provide a Homeless Child a Summer to Remember!
Partner with us to send 100 vulnerable children to camp every week this summer!
At Action Ministries Atlanta we are committed to providing vulnerable children education and enrichment activities to foster self-esteem, confidence and academic success.
With our newly expanded Children’s Program, Action Ministries will be sending children to 15 camps this summer! Students will spend 10 weeks building important skills including teamwork, cooperation and self-confidence through a variety of summer camps. Most importantly, their participation in camp will serve to “halt the summer learning slide,” which researchers define as the academic backslide children can experience if their summer structure doesn’t encompass continued learning opportunities.
Each child enrolled in the After School Program will attend one of the following camps: Emory Challenge and Champions Summer Program; Clark Atlanta Summer Transportation Institute; Reach for Excellence at Marist; Camp WinShape; Atlanta Preservation Camp; Camp Evergreen; Peace and Carrot; STEM at Georgia State through Mary Jones Elementary School; Peachtree Road UMC Basketball Camp; Camp Grandview; Camp Brian Jordan; Chastain Horse Park; GirlTalk; Camp Bob; and Fuqua Boys & Girls Club.
To ensure that our kids have positive experiences at camp, we do have financial and in-kind needs.
Summer Camp in-kind needs:
- Camp clothes
- Athletic shoes
- Individually wrapped cookies, chips and other snack items
- Juice boxes
- Camp fees
- Camp scholarships
Action Ministries Atlanta invested over $40,000 this summer to ensure summer camp opportunities for each child enrolled in the program for 10 weeks. By making a financial contribution, you are investing in a child’s future. To make a donation, click here.
