An Award-Winning Program

Camp Attaway was honored by the Association of Community Services as having the 2013 Employee Team of the Year in conjunction with its prestigious Audrey Robbins Humanitarian Awards Program.

Since 1975, The Audrey Robbins Humanitarian Awards have honored the work of human services organizations and those volunteers and staff who go above and beyond all expectations in their service to the community. Named for Audrey Robbins, a dedicated and inspiring Director of the Howard County Department of Social Services, the award has been given annually at an event celebrating service accomplishments of those in our community.

We are very proud to report that Camp Attaway won the Casey and Pebble Willis Making a Difference Award from the Community Foundation presented at their annual philanthropy awards dinner. This $3000 award honors one non-profit annually for making a difference in Howard County.
