Westchester Parks Foundation engages the public to advocate for and invest in the preservation, conservation, use and enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails and open spaces within the Westchester County Parks system.
Did you know that we operate and support Camp Morty at Mt. Lakes Park? Camp Morty offers a quality outdoor traditional camp experience for underprivileged children residing in Westchester County. The camp is solely dedicated to taking kids that come from homeless shelters, the foster care system, and/or on public assistance, and giving them a traditional summer camp experience. We are looking forward to another successful summer in 2017.
