Every child should have the opportunity to go to summer day camp. After a challenging pandemic year, camp allows kids to get their childhood back. For more than two decades, Asphalt Green Summer Day Camp scholarships have brought children from all over New York City to our campus to play outside, make new friends and develop physical, emotional, and social skills that stay with them for a lifetime. A limited number of scholarships are also available to participate as a counselor in training.

Earlier during summer 2021, CBS New York stopped by Asphalt Green to see the positive impact camp has on kids. Watch the video to see campers’ joyful reactions to a new, much-needed sense of normalcy.

Campers for a Cause 

You can help give the gift of Summer Day Camp! Every summer, our campers learn the importance of giving back to those in need by participating in our Campers for a Cause fundraiser. There is also an element of friendly competition among camp groups. Each child has the opportunity to fundraise for Summer Day Camp scholarships by collecting as many donations as possible. The group that raises the most money will be rewarded with a very special field trip, the only off-site outing of the summer!

Plus, this year only, you can double your impact. Every dollar donated will be doubled by an anonymous Asphalt Green donor.* Even the smallest members of our Asphalt Green community can help make sports and fitness available to all at a time when it is needed more than ever. 

*Contributions are doubled up to $50,000.  With each donation, please enter your campers’ full name, group, and campus in order to count toward their group total.
