Summer Camp Success!!! 2014

Summer Camp Success!

The Community Youth Development program, in partnership with Prairie View A&M University/4-H, hosted a free ten week Summer Camp, at the Rapturea Better Way Christian Ministry Church.   The camp included numerous life skill, career, and physical fitness activities.   A total of 75 youth, ages 8-17, participated in swim lessons at the YMCA, golf lessons in partnership with First Tee, and money management activities; which included a reality fair sponsored by Resource One Credit Union.  Youth also attended the Jay Z/Beyoncé, “One the Run Concert Tour”, thanks to the generous donation from the Shawn Carter Foundation. CrossFit 3816 facilitated the physical training component each morning for all youth groups, and City Square provided breakfast and lunch daily.  Sponsors included PepsiCo, the Shawn Carter Foundation, Sun Life Bank, Safeway Foundation, and the Credit Union Foundation.  Participants spoke highly of the camp organizers and look forward to next year’s camp experience.
