We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to experience the joy and growth that a summer camp like Pok-O-MacCready can offer.

By donating to the Adirondack Scholarship Foundation, you're not just giving a child a fun-filled summer – you're investing in their future, fostering personal growth, and creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

We commit to providing equal opportunities for all children, regardless of their background or financial situation. Your donation helps bridge the gap, ensuring that no child is left behind, and that everyone can enjoy the benefits of a summer camp experience.
