We made it through another great week of service! Parents and campers should be very proud of all the good work, learning and experiences that were gained during Project Impact.
Friday’s theme was Reaching Out. We spent the morning at Scott Senior Center – cleaning the patios, organizing cabinets and the donation room, making tote bags for the seniors who frequent the center – but mostly making new friends, sharing stories and experiences, and gaining appreciation for those that we might not usually hang out with.
The afternoon was spent with a group from the Boys and Girls Club at the skating rink. Our campers acted as peer mentors – again making new friends, and sharing fun experiences alongside a younger crowd.
Although they enjoyed everything we did this week, we learned that this group of campers favors working with animals and people. Several of the kids found future careers they may be interested in. All of our campers came away with a better understanding of how they can make a difference through volunteer service. We look forward to seeing each of them, and their families, volunteering again in the community.
