What is Camp-a-Jawn?

Camp-a-Jawn is our chance to come together as a community to move from hard times towards better good times.  It is a fun and innovative way to get involved, have fun, challenge yourselves and your friends all while helping us reach our goal of raising $15,000 during the month of June!


The word “Jawn” is uniquely Philly, unlike any other word in any other language. Like this simple word, Philadelphia and its people are unlike any other people of any other city.  The city of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection, we depend on one another in both good times and hard times. This past year has been a hard time, especially for the youth of Philly. Forced to navigate an ever-changing and constantly evolving environment our kids embraced virtual learning, social isolation, and learned to face some difficult challenges– head-on and now they are ready for some fun at Camp Jamison this summer.

We have a HUGE goal and NEED your help.

We need to raise $15,000 in the month of June to cover the $250 per day, per camper cost to provide camp opportunities without worrying about finances.

There are two ways that you and your friends can get involved, have fun, and do something great in the life of a child.
