2014 Summer Camps wrapped up this past Friday, August 22nd. This summer So What Else doubled the amount of our day and week long camps, provided free of cost, to low income and under served communities in Maryland and DC. We provided four weeks of day camp for the PG County Community Services Division, where we served over 400 kids. Two weeks of camp for the Montgomery County Recreation department at Broad Acres Elementary School in Silver Spring, Maryland, serving over 60 kids. Two weeks of summer programming at White Oak Recreation Center where we served over 60 kids. We finished out summer with our 4th year of two weeks of camp at the Kingman Boys and Girls Club where we served over 80 kids.
Youth spent the summer participating in service learning projects, sports and games, fitness and healthy cooking lessons, expressive arts and crafting, science and engineering projects, music lessons, water play, environmental projects and more. Big thanks to our dedicated staff of Youth Development Practitioners and Interns who made this summer a success for our youth and for So What Else.
