BECOME A CAMP CHAMPION
Support HONK NYC!’s first-ever kids camp!

HONK NYC!’s Kids Summer Camp is funded in part by the Staten Island Children’s Museum. Additional support is available through a grant from Staten Island Arts , who awarded our 2017 fall festival with a NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs grant for the second year in a row. SIA will allow us to apply the portion of our grant originally earmarked for our fall educational initiative to the summer camp.
WE ARE NOW IN NEED OF A FEW CAMP CHAMPIONS
Folks who can provide extra sponsorship that will help cover our full staffing and material expenses.

The high end of our estimated camp budget is $7500. This will cover all staff compensation, plus camp T-shirts, supplies and other expenses. This leaves us with a gap of $3000 we are trying to fill before making any last-minute cuts in curriculum and programming in the coming week.

Perhaps you are a music educator, fan, or art lover who believes HONK NYC!’s creative, participatory culture to be of great value. Will you make a small contribution to help support this wonderful opportunity for Staten Island’s young people?
