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. 

For questions regarding a Summerships application, please Email: or call 319.338.7823.
