Project Morry is a nonprofit, year-round youth development organization, anchored by a residential summer camp with an educational focus. The organization is dedicated to giving youth from underserved communities, in and around the New York City metropolitan area, enriching learning opportunities through a curriculum based on school gatherings and an intensive summer camp program. The children, for whom these experiences would not otherwise be available, benefit from a network of support and gain increased social skills, enhanced self-esteem, positive core values and a greater sense of personal responsibility.

I was very shy, and didn’t have many friends. Camp was a safe environment for me to be able to express myself, and provided a great opportunity to connect and learn with people who were older. A lot of early lessons I learned at camp, I still use today: to open up to new groups of people, reach out for support whenever I need it, and leverage my strengths.

Every year since inception, the program has grown in scope and impact – from a summer camp to a robust year-round program that supports academic success; additional community partners and more children; new social, academic, mentoring and coaching programs; successful fund- and friend-raisers; and alumni who come back to participate because they believe so deeply in our mission.
