Giving back is baked into our business model
If you've ever seen a SUMMERTIME camp in action, you already know how much fun the kids are having. What you might not know is that a significant number of the kids you see participating in our programs are attending at no cost to the families.

Jeremy Devoid "Cultivate the Spirit" Scholarship
Honoring our brother who has passed on to the eternal ride
In the summer of 2007, we didn't know how short our time left on Earth with Jeremy was. Although he had been living with a new diagnosis of "cancer-free", Jeremy was still recovering from operations that had significantly changed his life. Eating, surfing, and other activities that were once routine for Ocean Grove's favorite son, became a challenge. In spite of his hardship, Jeremy made his presence felt by volunteering at SUMMERTIME Surf camp in Belmar throughout the summer, and even shared his songwriting talents with campers over lunch. When the doctors told him that his cancer had returned, Jeremy didn't give up. He continued to inspire us with his overwhelmingly positive attitude, making art, music, and waves with everyone lucky enough to have him in their company.
SUMMERTIME has partnered with Jeremy's surviving family to award 4 scholarships a summer to young members of the community who demonstrate a positive attitude, and a respect for life.
We miss you Jer, Aloha. :')
