VASCA is a not-for-profit agency providing grants to support summer respites for low-income elderly residents of New York City.

Hundreds of City seniors annually benefit from scholarships which permit them to escape to the countryside and attend camps for up to two weeks each summer.

We encourage those who want to support our mission, or who wish to inquire about getting involved with our work, to contact us directly, or to sign up for updates using the form at the right.


2019 VASCA camping applications are OPEN until midnight, Monday, March 25, 2019.
Please email vascacamping@gmail.com for a link to the online application.
