About Amici Camping Charity:

Amici Camping Charity places children from financially-challenged families with partner summer camps for 2- to 4-week stays on a multi-year basis. Children accepted into the program have the opportunity to progress through the summer camp experience over the course of four to five years, potentially culminating in a 4-week Leadership in Training (LIT) program at their camp.

Amici selects and maintains relationships with affiliate camps (currently 23 camps), selects program participants through referrals and outreach, and raises funds to cover subsidized camp fees at the affiliates. Central to Amici's program is the belief that a multi-year model, where individuals are given the opportunity to return to camp year after year, provides greater and longer-lasting benefits than one-off camping experiences. Campers are typically drawn from single parent homes with more than one child and less than $33k in annual income.

In 2014, Amici helped 210 children enjoy a total of 475 weeks of camp. 75% of Amici campers return to their partner camp each summer.

Financial Review:

In F2014 Amici's administrative costs were 13% of revenues and fundraising costs were 13% of donations. Amici spent $412k on camp fees, which accounted for 73% of total expenses. Its funding reserves of $1m cover annual program costs 2.2 times.
