It is officially the start of summer camp at St. Francis Center! We kicked off last week with our nutritious cooking camp, provided by Leah’s Pantry, where our youth learned about healthy eating, and made tasty dishes, such as yogurt parfaits, and corn and bean salads. This week is Art Camp – our youth are participating in painting, photography, and improv classes!
Every summer, SFC sends children of the extremely low-income families we serve through our pantry service, on site and now also at our satellite pantries, to camp!
At the end of next week, we will send our first group of campers to overnight, week-long camp in Big Bear at Camp Whittle, where they’ll play sports, swim, horseback ride, use the climbing wall, and much more!
Our Youth Summer Camp Program leaves a lasting impression on youth by connecting them with nature and engaging them in a variety of activities that open their eyes to new opportunities.
