Send a Kid to Camp!

This summer, more than 320 young people will explore art, dance, music and theatre at Kennedy Heights Arts Center. We are proud that 100 percent of our programs are accessible to everyone regardless of financial means. Last year, 97 low-income students received financial assistance to attend summer arts camps – amounting to over $10,000 in aid in the summer alone!

To ensure that EVERY child has a chance to go to art camp, we ask for your support through our Scholarship Fund Campaign. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by June 1.

Your donation of:

  • $35 – Send a kid to camp for one day
  • $70 – Send a kid to camp for two days
  • $150 – Send a kid to camp for one week
  • $300 – Send a kid to camp for two weeks
  • $600 – Send a kid to camp for one month
  • $1,500 – Send a kid to camp for the whole summer!
