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.

Camp Brooklyn Fund functions through the support of an active and dedicated BOARD OF DIRECTORS, who donate their time and expertise to ensure that as many children as possible are given the opportunity to attend camp.

Brooklyn Bowl Event

On Monday, June 22nd, friends of Camp Brooklyn bowled the night away at Brooklyn Bowl's state of the art bowling lanes. Brooklyn Bowl provided tasty food made to perfection by Blue Ribbon: fried chicken, green salad and mac & cheese. Bowlers also enjoyed live music and the cool vibe of Brooklyn Bowl, which Rolling Stone magazine called âone of the most incredible places on Earth.â Camp Brooklyn greatly appreciates the support of everyone who came out to the event and also those who donated. Thanks to you, we'll be able to send even more kids to sleep-away camp this summer!
