This summer, the Chelsea Rotary Club is once again sponsoring 20 lucky Chelsea students between ages 7 and 15 to an all expense paid week of overnight camp at Camp Rotary in Boxford, MA. Since 1998, the Chelsea Rotary Club has sponsored over 270 children at the overnight camp with the help of many generous community partners. The Chelsea club provides transportation to and from camp, pays all tuition, field trip, cabin picture and camp store fees as well as gives each scholarship winner a backpack filled with toiletries, beach towels and all kinds of items they can use for their week at camp.  
Chelsea children are selected through an essay contest open to all Chelsea children between the ages of 7 and 15. A committee of Chelsea Rotary Club members reviews all letters and makes the selection of campers. Pictured with Camp Rotary Executive Director Dr. Richard Cowdell and Chelsea Rotary Club Camp Rotary Committee Chairperson Sue Gallant are some of this year’s lucky campers. The Chelsea Rotary Club congratulates all the winners of this year’s camp essay contest!
We also encourage other clubs to start sponsoring students at Camp Rotary. It is a week the kids will never forget!
