After reconsidering, pop star Britney Spears has agreed to continue funding a summer performing arts camp for inner-city children. With more than $200,000 from the Britney Spears Foundation, Donna Milani Luther of Norwell started the camp five years ago for girls and boys ages 11 to 15. One-hundred-thirty children from low-income families in Boston, New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., attend the Cape Cod camp free each year. In January, Luther learned that the singer’s foundation would no longer fund the program, known has the Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts. Although Spears asked Luther to start the camp, the foundation announced that it was redirecting Spears’ charitable giving to another cause: programs for children with cancer. But Spears changed her mind.
