Entering its 17th year of service, our Summer Camp Experience provided the youth of Allegheny County with countless memories and awesome adventures throughout this summer, while creating lasting friendships. Located at Wesley Center and the Jeron X. Grayson Community Center the camp is divided into groups by grades so that we may maximize their experiences as well as enhance their individualized activities.
With partners like Venture Outdoors, Club Scouts, The Story Mobile, and others, the campers were delighted with a variety of daily activities which included swimming, kayaking, fishing, museum tours, recreational reading, as well as multiple field trips to the view the latest movies and wonders of the area’s Carnegie Museums, just to name a few.
The campers also enjoyed special activities, such as their excursions to PNC Park to cheer for the Pittsburgh Pirates and our end of the year trip to our great Kennywood Park. The camp also provided an opportunity to visit the Rollerdome in Youngstown, Ohio. When hanging out on our sites or in the neighborhood, campers were able to enjoy our computer center, games room, and often utilized the adjacent parks to get in some good exercise and fun!
The campers were given the opportunity to delve into an entrepreneurial role as well with the 4th and 5th grade girls’ bake sale, with the profits going toward their Annual Girls TakeOver SleepOver.herpes pictures class=”Apple-converted-space”> The bake sale generated so much attention that it made the Tribune Review!!
At the end of the 2016 CARES Summer Enrichment Camp session, the campers were shown appreciation for attending by being surprised with an all day summer explosion cook-out party held at the Jeron X. Grayson Community Center.
After 17 years of excellence would you expect anything less?
