Tune into our interview on CBS Radio!

Our founders Bob Schless and Dave Silbert were interviewed for a nationally syndicated talk show “People of Distinction”, which will air this Saturday, August 22nd, at 5PM and will run continuously until 8PM.

We are honored to have been chosen by Al Cole as “People of Distinction” and look forward to sharing the impactful work we do in the Baltimore-Washington metro area with his audience.

Summer Olympics Event Changed

So What Else’s summer Olympics event has been changed to THIS Thursday, August 6th due to the forecast for Friday!

We will be gathering over 400 youth from Community Services Foundation in Prince George’s County, Montgomery County, Howard County, and Washington DC at Watkins Regional Park (301 Watkins Park Dr, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774) for a jam-packed day full of cheers, banners, arts and crafts, athletics, and service activities!

This event is the culmination of a whole summer of So What Else summer camps with CSF, and we can’t WAIT to get out there for an awesome day of fun in the sun!

Big thanks to our partners this summer

We’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Nourish Now, Vie de France, and Leveling the Playing Field. Their partnerships have always been invaluable and appreciated, but we know our summer programs would not be what they are without their generous donations of food and athletic equipment.

First two weeks of summer camp: SUCCESS!

So What Else completed the first two weeks of summer camp, and our providers and campers could not have had a better time!

With three sites per day, So What Else led sports games, arts and crafts, expressive arts, fitness and nutrition classes, music workshops, and more for over 175 kids at eleven different sites. All sites have incorporated our “pay it forward” mentality and incorporated service learning into each day.

All activities and meals are free of charge for our campers and their families. We can’t WAIT to see what the rest of the summer has to offer! Check out the gallery of camp highlights at this link!
