CCC Scholarship RecipientsCCC programs support kids and teens from adolescence to adulthood, with opportunities for personal and academic development to help them reach their goals. Last year, seven program alumni who had aged out of the Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program (ASC) received a CCC scholarship to attend their camp’s Leader-in-Training (LIT) or Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program. ASC participants frequently demonstrate significant growth in leadership skill development, and, often, participation in a camp’s leadership program can lead directly to employment.

  • Cory Peters, the son of Nicole Lewis Peters (Stony Brook Southampton), who has been attending Greenwood Trails since 2017, attended Greenwood’s CIT Program. As a CIT participant, Cory took on duties and responsibilities around camp to develop his leadership skills and prepare for a future role as a Junior Counselor.
  • Six additional children received a CCC scholarship to attend a general ASC camp program. In these instances, the child was either the underage sibling of an ASC-eligible camper or the member was no longer eligible for ASC.
  • Osagiemagbon Idehen, the son of Ivie Omoruyi (One Brooklyn Health – Brookdale), attended Camp Shohola for Boys for his first campexperience through ASC.

The leadership program helped me grow by being able to open up more than I was able to before.– Cory Peters

My favorite part of camp was being able to meet people from all around the world. I made friends from different states and even different countries.– Osagiemagbon Idehen
