The Arc of Essex County Awarded Grant from the Orange Orphan Society

March 16th, 2015

This week, The Arc of Essex County was awarded a grant from the Orange Orphan Society totaling $7,500 to support the agency’s Camp Hope Fee Assistance Project, which will cover camp fees for children up to 18 years of age living in the Oranges or Maplewood.  This grant will enable children to attend Camp Hope, The Arc of Essex County’s seven-week, summer day camp for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Arc of Essex County would like to thank Orange Orphan Society for their continued support of the Camp Hope program.  Camp Hope will open for its 59th season in late-June.  Applications for the 2015 season are available here.  For questions relating to Camp Hope or to receive an application via mail, please contact Courtney Kane at (973) 535-1181 ext. 1292 or ckane@arcessex.org.
