SCOPE Campership Fund

The Bradley Schwartz Campership Fund

In Honor and Memory of Brad

The Bradley Schwartz Campership Fund provides overnight camp summer scholarships to campers that are in financial need. This fund was established by family members and friends of Bradley Schwartz to honor his memory and passion for SCOPE. Bradley was the son of Allen and Helen Schwartz and brother of Stacy Schwartz Kotelov who started and own Banner Day Camp. Bradley Schwartz, known to most of us as Brad, sadly passed away in 2011 from cancer. He was co-founder of SCOPE Midwest which establishes campership funds to provide camp scholarships for children who attend overnight camps through SCOPE Midwest. In keeping with Brad’s dedication to SCOPE and passion about ensuring that all children had access to summer camp, the fund has been in place since his passing in 2011 and almost $60,000 has been raised. We continue to honor and remember Brad through numerous individuals’ generous and heartfelt support and donations. Thank you to those who have donated past, present and future.

In partnership with camp directors and supporters from the Chicago area, SCOPE Midwest was established as the first affiliate. Since its inception, SCOPE Midwest has provided over 700 camp scholarships to children in need in the midwest region.
