GIVE to CAMP 1302!

Serving the Engelwood Community



Since 2012, CAMP 1302 has served more than 450 community youth in the summer day camp. 
CAMP 1302 has been in partnership with the city’s youth summer employment program, One Summer Chicago, and Catholic Charities. Through this partnership, we have been able to provide summer jobs to more than 200 teens since our founding. Additionally, we partner with Greater Chicago Food Depository to provide breakfast and lunch to each of the summer camp participants and teen workers at no cost. Each summer, the onsite directors volunteer their staff time to the day camp.
We also partner with American Camp Association to provide scholarships to 25 Campers per year; however, this is a matching scholarship program. We must match each scholarship we provide our families.
