All children should have access to recreational activity and enrichment programs at no cost so they can grow socially and emotionally alongside their peers. To help ensure that Brooklyn children and students are able to attend enrichment programs like sleep-away camps, Broadway Stages has supported the Camp Brooklyn Fund and sponsored the fund's Community Service Award.
Working together with the Camp Brooklyn Fund, Broadway Stages has set out on the mission to send Brooklyn students to sleep-away camps at no expense to their families. These camps are designed to transform children's lives by teaching them the importance of their individuality while socializing, growing, and learning with fellow campers. Guided by excellent instructors, campers enjoy group activities to develop teamwork skills while learning about personal and social responsibility to become good citizens. In fact, most campers that attend the sleep-away camp program remain friends even after the camp has ended and continue to uphold good citizenship.
To help continue to fund sleep-away experiences, Broadway Stages supports these life-changing adventures by financially contributing to Camp Brooklyn Fund events and sponsoring outreach interactions.
At this year's Community Service Award Gala, the Brooklyn community came together to recognize supporting members, inspire new found members, and hold an auction to raise funds to support upcoming events for Brooklyn campers. Broadway Stages was happy to provide behind-the-scenes tours of Broadway Stages, a gift certificate, a Coach charm bag, a Chanel pareo, a photo autographed by Stan Lee, Cosmos tickets, a Fitbit, and Hello Dolly Broadway tickets for the auction. With the contributions, Broadway Stages looks forward to seeing more campers at Camp Brooklyn.
