About Camp Brooklyn Fund

Many children from low-income Brooklyn families seldom get an opportunity to leave their urban environment. The Camp Brooklyn Fund was created to give these children an opportunity to attend sleep-away camp and have the experience of a lifetime!

Just $750 will send a child to camp for two weeks.

Teamwork, loyalty, wholesome health habits, responsibility and personal respect and appreciation for nature are all a part of a child's education at summer camp.

Intensive camp experiences can truly open up a world of opportunities to young people. Sending young people to camp also gives working parents/caregivers a much-needed break.

Camp Brooklyn was founded by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz in 2002 and now operates as Camp Brooklyn Fund, a not-for-profit 501(C)(3) organization. We raise the necessary funds through fundraisers, sponsorships, grants for program support and donations from caring individuals.
