Camp Financial Aid

Wellesley Friendly Aid is dedicated to giving children living at or near poverty levels an enriching summer camp experience. This program is solely funded by donations, with a major gift from the Wellesley Service League. Last year  Friendly Aid provided funding to 78 children.

Due to the generosity of the Wellesley community every eligible child who applied was helped in 2016. Our goal this year is to raise $35,000 and once again a generous anonymous donor has offed to match contributions up to a total of $10,000.  Please find our solicitation letter here.

►Local day camps, including Wellesley Recreation Department camps and WINGS, the Town's academic enrichment program, are the top choices.

►We have been sending children to camp since 1942. Please help us continue this program.
