Summer Series is designed to encourage connections in a structured but playful manner.
One camper age 6 said, “I am sad I left day camp and want to go back and stay longer” and here’s a parent’s perspective,“I love how the camp workers are so engaging and keep the campers busy with group projects, crafts, cooking, outside activities, story telling and so much more. I love that they are trying to get the campers to interact with each other, build social interaction that might be challenging for kids with extra needs.” First West Foundation is proud to provide grants through the Envision Financial Community Endowment benefitting the Summer Series.
