"CSC does more than help children reach their potential. It is at CSC that these children realize they have potential. Their lives are so full of stress and challenge, they don’t see it. Without CSC, they probably never would."

Camp Susan Curtis 2020 Season: Camp Susan Curtis held camp this summer for 91 economically disadvantaged Maine children.  We put careful safety measures in place, and all the campers and counselors stayed healthy.  The kids enjoyed much needed outdoor play, time with friends after months of isolation, and a mental health break from stressors at home.  In addition to the in-person social connection and support we were able to provide at camp, we distributed 800 camp activity kits at summer meal sites across the state, and hosted regular broadcasts on Facebook for campers at home.   Please use this link to view a special message of thanks to our many 2020 supporters who made this possible.
