Support Sought for Free Full-Day Summer Camp
Blogger's Note: The following information is provided by Kerriann Herdelin, Executive Director, Greater Pottstown Tennis & Learning
In years past, Pottstown School District has received large grants to run full day summer enrichment camps for six weeks for students who qualified.
Unfortunately, the School District does not have the resources this year to fund a full day program and will have to cut back to a morning only program this summer.
Nine community organizations have collaborated to continue to run a successful enrichment camp for the afternoon portion.
We have constructed a schedule that students will rotate daily to have access to each organizations offering, allowing the students to have various healthy experiences. Our camp will offer guest speakers, such as: Police Officers, Firefighters, Doctors, etc...
These community organizations below find it extremely important to keep the Pottstown students engaged in healthy activities throughout the summer and hopefully learn valuable lessons.
We hoping for local business sponsors to help with this important camp.
We have posted all this information on Greater Pottstown Tennis & Learning's Facebook page.
These are the organizations that are collaborating:
Pottstown School District
Community Health & Dental
TriCounty Community Network
YWCA Tri-County Area
Pottstown Regional Public Library
Steel River Playhouse
