Who We Are

Amazing Grace of Cape Cod was incorporated as a 501 (c) 3 in 2013 to offer programs for children from Cape Cod and the South Shore whose parent is or has been incarcerated.

What We Do

Amazing Grace began (and continues) as a one-week residential camping experience for children ages 7-11. Over the last three years, thanks to a partnership with the South Shore YMCA Camp Burgess, we have had 54 children ages 7-11 attend our summer camp. Last year, we began offering a chance for children in our program who turn 12+ to spend a week of coed camping at Camp Hayward. This year, Amazing Grace expanded its program to include monthly activities for the campers and their families.

This year's week at Camp Burgess is August 20-25.
