2022 Summer Camp

9 AM to 4 PM

This year’s theme for Summer Camp is Activism.

The children ARE our future. They are not unlike the generation prior, wanting to make and be the change in the world and finding it to be quite an arduous task. Yet over the last few years, students have bravely stepped up to demand the promises given to them by their leaders.
