The Power of Me!
EBAYC’s Camp Thrive is a four-week summer experience that lets youth campers be youth while gaining life skills and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
This year’s theme, “The Power of Me,” is designed to challenge and engage students in a fun, collaborative environment as they build connections with themselves, their culture and their community.
Campers will experience new learning opportunities through age appropriate hands-on projects, team building activities and field trip adventures.
Week 1: Me & My Community
We are not a team because we work with each other. We are a team because we respect, trust and help each other!
Week 2: Me & My Culture
Through the power of our heightened senses we take flight in an exploration of taste, music and cultural traditions rooted in our community!
Week 3: Me & My Body
Time to do some major housekeeping. Our body is not just a temple. It’s our HOME which we will live in forever. Let’s learn how to take care of it!
Week 4: Me & Our Celebration
Let’s remember, it is summer break. So we definitely need to CELEBRATE!
