Camperships

Each summer we provide over $15,000 in summer “campership” opportunities to kids in need living in Andover.  Andona works closely with the school system to identify prospective candidates and then works with candidate families to enroll their children in camp programs of their choice.  Our sponsorship provides up to $225 per child per summer.  Interested families must contact the adjustment counselor at their child’s school and not Andona directly.

Candidate families will receive notification via mail in the beginning of March and are asked to provide us with all of the necessary forms and applications by the end of April. Applications will be assigned a number in the order they are received and camperships will be awarded on a first come/first served basis.

In recent years several recipients chose to attend: Camp Otter, Dept. of Community Services – Andover, SHED, Hooptown, MSPCA and many others.

“We received Camperships for 2 children for this summer at Camp Adventure.  I want to thank you for your continued support of this family and for so many other families in the community.  I know they appreciate it, as do we!  Keep up the great work that you do!”   Executive Director, SHED, Inc.
