Camperships Now Available

Camperships provide so much more than a week of sports, crafts and campfires. For a child who in infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, a campership can mean a rare time of normalcy where the stress of treatments, financial burdens and stigma falls out of focus. It can mean a safe space to talk to people who who truly understand. Or it can be a time of respite when family and caregivers to recharge. No matter what the need, camp is a place where kids can be kids and make memories that will last a lifetime. If you or someone you know could benefit from the camp experience this summer, let AFWM help. Download our Campership application 2015 today, or call (413)592-5444 for more information. Applications are approved on a first come, first served basis while funding is available. Learn More Now
