What's a "SUMMERSHIP"?


A "Summership" provides a K-12 student from Johnson and Washington Counties, who are eligible for Free & Reduced Lunch, with a camp scholarship.

 United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties and the Community Foundation of Johnson County are proud to partner to coordinate this scholarship program.

“Summerships" provide access to summer-time, high quality camps and activities for children who otherwise might not have the opportunity,” explains Katie Knight, President & CEO of United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties.

A "Summership" scholarship will fund up to $250 of one summer camp or summer activity cost per child.
