The HHF SKATE CAMP SCHOLARSHIP program has been our cornerstone initiative since the organization was formed in 2007. Every summer, we provide need-based scholarships to NYC youth (age 14-18) to attend action sports training camps. HHF campers are accompanied by a local chaperone and are provided with all the necessary gear, transportation, and spending money.
The program provides the opportunity to attend skate camp for up to three summers in order to foster relationships between campers from disparate neighborhoods within and across cohorts, and with HHF volunteer staff, interns, skater/videographers, and chaperones.
Since the scholarship program’s inception we have provided 185 scholarships to Camp Woodward in Pennsylvania, the Element YMCA Skate Camp in Sequoia Lake, California, and the Homage Day Camp in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
