BENEFITING: YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit
EVENT DATE: Jan 07, 2016
Help set the children of Metropolitan Detroit up for success by sponsoring one full day of camp for just $40. Only with your help is it possible for the next generation of thinkers to reach their full potential.
Every year thousands of children go back to school disadvantaged due to the lack of summer learning opportunities. By the time low income children reach 5th grade they will be 2-3 years behind their middle income peers in math and reading skills. As a result, low-income children are less likely to graduate from high school or enter college. The YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit is working to close the gap and reverse the trend of summer learning loss through the region by incorporating educational programming into all of our summer day camps. Field trips are used as springboards for writing assignments, group discussions and art projects that are fun yet educational. Children are taught in a hands on way that can inspire their curiosity and love of learning.
