Summer Camp 2018

    Please consider supporting our Summer Camp 2018!

 For the 11th year, Common Ground will invite children from the neighborhood to join us for seven weeks for our free summer day camp. After a healthy lunch (and for some the only meal of the day), the children will engage in hands-on educational and enrichment activities, involving art, science, nutrition, garden time, recreation and of course, field trips! Perhaps more importantly, the children will build relationships with our dynamic staff that are often life changing.  Summer camp gives our kids a safe place to just be a kid, and escape the chaos that poverty brings to their young lives.   

Please consider helping make a difference in the lives of our children!

$35       Provide healthy and nutritious snacks for a week of camp

$50       Inspire creativity by providing art supplies for a child
