& Backpack Pirates Summer Festival

Backpack Pirates is an annual event where over 425 homeless and at-risk children will be invited to spend a day at a summer camp, packed with as many fun games and activities as possible.  

 

Activities include: Sports, field games, arts and crafts, treasure hunts, a theater show, swimming at the beach, archery, DJ and dancing, and much more. 

 

Please join as a camp counselor, athlete, artist, ocean certified lifeguard, time keepers, set up and clean up help, and even more importantly- a friend, teammate and part of an amazing memory.  

Back Pack Pirates Summer Festival 2018

"The need for assistance is growing each year.  We are grateful to the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation for their support and to other members of our community who come together to help our less fortunate neighbors.  These school supplies will help thousands of children go back to school with the tools they need to succeed.” -- Greta Guarton, Executive Director of LICH

 “Many of the children have never been to the beach or had new clothes or supplies for school.  Thanks to our partners in the community, Backpack Pirates and LICH, these kids will start the school year more prepared and more confident than they have before,” --Charles Russo, Chair of LICH and co-organizer of the Summer Festival
