The Matrix Center’s CAMP OZ has provided summer experiences to local youth since 2007. Maxing out at 100 kids, we often have to turn youth away. We NEED to do more!
CAMP OZ offers a summer program that inspires, provides growth experiences and changes lives.
You can help provide a campership to a youth who could otherwise not afford the $80 summer program. Click here to give. Any amount makes a difference.
We are seeking donations to provide camperships to youth who could otherwise not afford access to the program.
YOU can help!
Incoming donations are updated manually throughout the week. Check back for progress!
Our fundraising goal? $8000.
We hope to provide 100 complementary camperships to youth who could otherwise not afford the program. Give here.
That’s 100 kids, aged 5-16 enjoying safe, enriching, summer activities. Children coming from some of Detroit’s most dangerous, at-risk neighborhoods. That’s huge!
Help us send a child to summer camp.
You can provide a youth with 6 weeks of life changing, educational, summer fun for only $80!
A full 6 weeks of fun, enriching summer activities with breakfast and lunch included for $80.
That’s a bargain!
Can’t give $80? That’s ok! Give what you can. It adds up. Together we make a HUGE difference.
Click here to donate. You can sponsor one child, or several – or just chip in a little.
…SO MUCH MORE
The following organizations, working through CAMP OZ, join with Matrix to provide impactful programming to participating youth.
Keys to Life
Build a Bike
Inside Out Poetry
Detroit Children’s Choir
Our program partnership with the BUILD-A-BIKE Program allows participants the opportunity to put a bike together, including learning how to change the brakes and tires. The bikes constructed in this process are then kept by participating youth. This program had 30 participants in 2015.
