Summer Camp 2021 Recap

Summer Camp 2021 was nothing short of a BLAST for our campers. From visitng the North Carolina Zoo the first week of camp to watching new movies, to tie-dying T-shirts and MORE! We were blessed to be able to have such an amazing group of students this past summer.

We want to give a special THANK YOU to Durham Nativity School for hosting our Summer Reading Program and allowing the students to stay academically challenged throughout the summer, while still having fun. We are excited to have them back the 2022 school year.

As always, thank you to our donors for sponsoring our Summer Program and our volunteers for helping us bring our dreams to reality and allowing our campers the opportunity of an exciting summer.

Are you a fan of at-risk youth having a safe place to go during the summer months? So are we! We are proud to offer our camp at such a steep discount to families in our community but we can't do that without the generosity of our sponsors and donors. Consider investing in Summer Day Camp and help make a child's summer a great one!
