Summer Together is a wholly volunteer-run program that funds summer camp and activity scholarships for Port Washington families in need. Summer Together is a program of Long Island Together (LIT), a group of local activists working to improve access to educational and enrichment opportunities for children, among other social justice causes.
In Summer 2020, the program's third year, Summer Together enabled Port families to experience safe and enriching summer activities amid the challenges of the pandemic. We provided more than 100 children with a total of more than 300 weeks of activities.
Information on Summer 2021 will be posted in March and family applications will be posted April 1.
Summer Together is possible only because of the generosity of the Port community.
Please support us today! $250 funds one child to attend one week of day camp!
