Singer-songwriter and summer camp advocate Lisa Loeb is the American Camp Association, New England’s 2015 Camp Champion.
She’ll be honored at an event on November 13 at the State Street Pavilion at Fenway Park in Boston.
Loeb, who penned the hit ’90s song “Stay (I Missed You)” created the Camp Lisa Foundation to help send children in need to summer camp, producing a Camp Lisa album and most recently a musical called Camp Kappawanna that debuted at New York City’s Atlantic Theater in April.
“Lisa Loeb’s music and non-profit work have helped to build awareness of the importance of a camp experience in the life of every child,” Bette Bussel, Executive Director of ACA New England was quoted saying in a Patch article. “Lisa truly defines a ‘Camp Champion.'”
Past honorees include Camp Philanthropist Anna Gould, Actress Eliza Dushku, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and June and Eliot Tatelman.
