This year demonstrated that the heart of our mission – to provide opportunity – has never been more important. The campers, teens and families, whom we have the privilege to serve, are the future of this great city and, each and every day, we’re working toward a stronger, more equitable future for Boston.Jack Connors, Jr. Chairman
Our approach centers the voices of participants, both young people and their parents, in a transformational way. We develop our program direction and do our most purposeful work in partnership with families. I’m proud to say we continue to deepen our impact by listening to and investing in communities of color.Lisa Fortenberry Executive Director
As you will see in this comprehensive report, 2020 was a year of program adaptation and organizational innovation. Our focus remains local – on the kids and families in our community. We know that we alone cannot solve the vast and longstanding structural inequities in this country, but together we can make a measurable difference in the lives of those touched by Camp Harbor View.Sharon McNally President
This community came together in new and different ways this year to continue to support Boston youth and families. For a brief overview of our work, both prior to and through the pandemic, check out this video highlighting the spirit of Camp Harbor View.
Camp Harbor Views
In November, our first-ever online event experience brought together the entire Camp Harbor View community. Hosted by Jenny Johnson, with a few surprise guests along the way, the evening program shared stories of joy and hope with the community that made it possible. Even though we couldn’t gather in-person this year, it was uplifting and energizing to celebrate with the over 700 people tuned in including families, participants, supporters, and partners.
