A Critical “window of opportunity” for at-risk kids
Many of us have a wonderful image of summer as a carefree, happy time when “kids can be kids,” and we take for granted the prospect of enriching experiences such as summer camps, vacations with family, and trips to museums, parks, and libraries.
Unfortunately, some youth face anything but idyllic summer months. When the school doors close, many children face long weeks without any activities; months where they lose the opportunity to keep learning, as well as basic needs such as healthy meals and adequate supervision.
To all our wonderful supporters who made a real difference in the lives of our Summer Campers this year!
