Our story:

Troy Camp was founded in 1948 by a small group of USC students. Today, we are one of the university's oldest and largest philanthropies, working every day with hundreds of kids of all ages from the schools around USC's campus in South Los Angeles. In the summer, we host a week-long camp in the San Bernardino Mountains for 200 lucky elementary students. During the school year, we have a variety of after-school programs for elementary, middle, and high school students. We're non-denominational, not for profit, and all of our programs are free for students.
