Press Telegram Send-a-Kid-to-Camp Fund

Press Telegram Send-a-Kid-to-Camp Fund

The Press-Telegram Send-a-Kid-to-Camp campaign, launched in 1999, has resulted in hundreds of children reveling in the unique experience of attending a week-long summer camp. For many of these young people, the camping experience is life-changing. The mountain camps are run by the agencies we call the Big Five:  Boy & Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts, Camp Fire, Girl Scouts, and YMCA.

2020 Camp Experience

Despite the uncertainty spurred by the coronavirus outbreak, we are determined to provide kids with a camp experience, even if it’s not in our usual way. From home-delivered “Camp-in-a-Box” kits to guided, virtual explorations, our “Big 5” camp participants are getting creative to ensure camp is a reality for Long Beach youth this year.

Your tax-deductible financial contribution can help provide a child the opportunity to learn and grow during a week-long camp experience.
