OUR VISION & MISSION
Our shared vision is an inclusive, equitable Boston where every young person and family has the opportunity and resources to succeed.
To pursue this vision, we offer free, high-quality summer camp and year-round programs, nurturing deep relationships and empowering a thriving community of future leaders and their families.
OUR COMMITMENT TO EQUITY AND INCLUSION
Camp Harbor View’s work is focused on providing opportunity to some of Boston’s most historically marginalized communities. We believe that by working together with the families in our program we will make progress in overcoming many of the barriers of systemic inequity and advancing educational and economic parity. We strive to build a staff and board that is reflective of the communities that we serve.
