The 2017 Send a Kid to Theatre Camp Campaign

Donate now

Each spring we raise scholarship funds to allow dozens of disadvantaged children to attend our award-winning summer programs. Our 2017 campaign will officially launch April 3. In 2017 our goal is to raise more than $85,000 in financial aid to help disadvantaged children attend our summer programs. These funds come from generous individuals, as well as foundation and corporate donors. The campaign runs through mid-July.

Our Goal for the 2016 Send a Kid to Camp Campaign:
Raise more than $83,000 to help
provide camp for more than 90 kids whose families
cannot afford it on their own
To identify scholarship students for our camp, we work with respected grassroots organizations including CentroNia, Martha’s Table, Sasha Bruce YouthWorks, as well as school principals across the D.C. metro area. Small donations can make a big difference in a child’s life! When modest contributions from many people add up to $925, that amount provides a needy child a full scholarship to The Theatre Lab’s award-winning drama camps. Almost 40 percent of the more than 300 kids attending our camps this summer will be scholarship students from D.C.’s most underserved communities.
