Every year, the IRC in Missoula works diligently to ensure that summer camp is accessible to refugee youth by providing support with registration, scholarship applications, and additional financial support where needed. Full-time summer day-camps are an important opportunity for refugee youth to meet friends, integrate into their community, and build language and social skills that prepare them for success during the school year. With their children engaging in safe and structured programs, parents are able to focus on employment, earning income, and working towards financial stability.

However, beyond the high financial cost of attending summer camp, kids often need extra gear to ensure summer camp is successful, adding additional barriers! Summer Camp Kits will provide refugee youth with the items they need to be safe and focus on one thing, having fun!
