Campership Drive

If you are able to support other Lincoln children who cannot afford summer camp, the Parks & Recreation Department has a way for you to help.  Last year over 10% of our campers received financial assistance. If you’d like to contribute to our Campership Fund, we will see to it that the money helps other Lincolnites attend. Donations of all amounts are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible.
