The Marye Wells-Harley Dream Camp Scholarship

The mission of the Montgomery Parks’ Marye Wells-Harley Dream Camp Scholarship is to provide camp scholarships to young people, ages 6 – 14, from diverse backgrounds within Montgomery County. We believe camp is a place that changes lives, and we want every child to have the opportunity to experience the joys of summer camp (Learn how to donate). M-NCPPC recognizes that many residents are financially unable to participate in Summer Camp Programs and remains committed to serving the needs of all residents of Montgomery County.
