THE CAMP SCHREIBER FOUNDATION PROVIDES EDUCATIONAL SERVICES AND OUT-OF-CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES TO DETERMINED YOUNG MEN IN WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA.
WHO WE ARE
The Camp Schreiber Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to positively impacting our community. We provide educational services and out-of-classroom experiences to deserving young men in Wilmington, North Carolina. We have a depth of commitment to the young men selected to participate and we invest in our students, their families, and their education.
Supporting students from middle school through college, Camp Schreiber aims to remove obstacles for the young men it serves. We want the participants in our program to know that if they work hard, they can go far. There are still many structural and social barriers to educational equality and the Camp Schreiber Foundation is working to equip our students for life after high school and through college.
51 represents the number of weeks outside the camp experience. It represents the cornerstone of the program in the form of the academic support the campers receive. Students attend four hours of small group tutoring per week during the school year. The Camp Schreiber Foundation also provides SAT preparation courses, leadership and community development opportunities, and college application support throughout the year.
For one week a year, students fly to Schreiber Island to camp in the Canadian wilderness. This unique experience challenges the campers and strips familiarity away, so that they are able to problem solve, embrace discomfort, and welcome challenges. Campers will experience new activities like hiking, canoeing, fishing and camping outdoors. Outside of their normal environment, campers will get to see a new part of the world and discover new things about themselves.
In the middle of my eighth grade year, I was selected to be involved in this camp that motivates and supports teens pursuing their dreams of higher education. My presence was no longer shunned - it was admired.
This foundation is making a real difference in these young men's lives. They have three in college right now with another three about to enroll. It has been awesome watching these kids mature and become all that we knew they could.
Camp schreiber is important because they stand for hope. They provide these young men with opportunities that otherwise, they would not have. As a parent, that alone makes me hopeful.
