Visit Campership PageAttending camp is often the highlight of a child's summer. To make sure everyone gets a chance to experience it, United Way of Greater Waterbury offers Campership to children ages 5 - 18, who are members of low-income families in Bethlehem, Cheshire, Middlebury, Prospect, Southbury, Thomaston, Waterbury, Watertown, Wolcott, or Woodbury. Campership enables children to attend one session of summer camp, and they are awarded on first-come, first-served basis.
