Scholarships Support Area Youth in Summer Camp

Fifty-nine children are having a wonderful time at this year’s Summer Camp at John Eager Howard Recreation Center.

Every year the community is very generous helping to provide scholarships for the children to attend. This year is no exception. The Beth Am Synagogue Social Action Committee, Bolton-Park Neighbors, Historic Mt. Royal Terrace Association, Reservoir Hill H.O.P.E., and Joyce Keating have all generously provided scholarship support this year.

Though the recreation center is deep into the summer camp, scholarship help is still very much appreciated.  Cookie admits kids to the program whose tuition is unpaid or not fully paid, and she has to figure out how to balance it out in the end.

If you individually, or your neighborhood associations, can help, the per-child scholarship is $150.

If one wants a tax-deduction, the check can be written to RHIC, earmarked for JEH Summer Camp, and send to the RHIC office at 2001 Park Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21217.

If one would prefer donating directly to the Summer Camp program and do not need a tax deduction, payment must be in the form of a money order made payable to Director of Finance, and delivered to recreation center director Carolyn “Cookie” Newton at the John Eager Howard Recreation Center, 2100 Brookfield Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21217.

The Summer Camp is a great experience for the kids and something you could feel very good about supporting.
