  • 1. Do you provide opportunities for kids who are mentally or physically disabled?
     

    Of Course! As an organization we pride ourselves on seeking out other organizations to partner and provide the best services for all our camp participants. We never say no to a child and promise that we will work with whoever necessary to ensure every kid no matter the circumstances is able to come to our camps. Not only are we interested in teaching kids to Play It Forward out in their community, but are excited to see the same amount of love at all of our camps by helping fellow kids.

  • 2. Do you provide scholarships for kids to go to other camps that are not put on by S.P.O.R.T.S.?
     

    Definitely! That is one step to our strategic plan to Play It Forward. We encourage the kids to make a pledge to Play It Forward in their community. Upon making this pledge, we will cover their costs to attend another camp that is in line with the mission of S.P.O.R.T.S. Even more so, once the kid completes their volunteer effort, we will provide a monetary donation in their name to a cause of their choice.

  • 3. Who is allowed to come to your camps?
     

    Yes, we strive to have an inviting environment for all kids no matter what their race, gender, or background. We believe many kids miss out on the opportunity to attend camps due to, but not limiting, financial issues, language barriers, and bullying. We understand these barriers can limit the chance for these kids to get the experience our team had when we were young. Our goal is to remove those challenges and barriers so they have equal opportunity as the student standing next to them.

  • 4. Will you send kids to camps that are not focused around sports/ student involvement?
     

    Unfortunately no. Our mission is to provide opportunities through the use of students. We have made a promise to our donors that their money would go towards the mission and vision of S.P.O.R.T.S. Part of that mission is to provide scholarships and help similar organizations. With this in mind, the camps have to be sports related and have a high student involvement.
