Britney Spears – whose new reality series, “Chaotic,” was savaged by reviewers – apparently decided she doesn’t need the competition. Because The Bride of Federline is phasing out her kids’ camp for the performing arts on Cape Cod.
Brits’ peeps confirmed the newly married, newly preggo pop tart has decided to focus her charitable activities on kids who are battling cancer. And that her annual performing-arts summer program for underprivileged kids will not take any new campers this year.
“We’re going to do a smaller version this year,” said Britney Spears Foundation gal Nina Bigger. “She’s more focused on helping children with cancer, the healing aspects and dealing with treatment.”
Bigger said Brits will be making her first round of grants to organizations dealing with childhood cancer late this summer and while the camp will go on this year, it will be cut back.
For the past five years, Britney’s foundation has funded a 10-day performing-arts seminar at Camp Wingate Kirkland in Yarmouth for about 60 underprivileged kids. At the end of the two-week program, the kids would put their newfound performing-arts skills on display in a show for Britney.
But the handwriting may have been on the wall last summer when, for the first time, Spears did not attend the show, leaving a posse of not-so-happy campers. Instead, her mom Lynne filled in.
Bigger said this year, the camp will move from Wingate to Camp Farley in Marstons Mills and only alums of the earlier camps will be invited to attend. Instead of 10 days, it will run for just five.
“We had a great experience at Wingate,” Bigger said, “but they really needed to book it for 10 days, not the five we were looking for.”
But all’s well that ends well, because the new Camp To Belong in Massachusetts will take over Brit’s reservation. It’s a program for siblings who have been separated while in foster care.
