Britney Spears created a summer camp for under-privileged kids back in 1999 (pictured at a camp performance, above), because she’s charitable like that. TMZ reports that Britney’s camp is now in danger of going under, because for the first time in its eleven year history, no celebrity sponsors are stepping up with grants.
The ten-day summer program has space for 250 “economically disadvantaged students” and was originally named the “Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts.” Britney bowed out in 2004 and the camp’s name was then changed to “Summer Stars Camp.” The kiddie camp has never had any money problems before and has received generous donations from sponsors like 50 Cent and the Jonas Brothers.
The camp’s executive director says they’ve run out of money and have resorted to entering a contest run by Pepsi in the effort to raise $250, 000 to stay afloat. Someone send them a check ASAP. Gaga – we’re looking at you!
