Free Summer Camp

Filed under: Teens — Sue Dirosario @ 11:09 am

Rockland After-School Alliance (RASA) is gearing up for its third summer of
free day camp for Rockland-area youth. There are exciting program offerings this
year as well as schedule changes.

Programs will begin July 5th and are open to current Rockland
District Middle School students. We will welcome out of area
5th-8th grade students on a space-available basis. Camps
will run at RDMS five days a week through August 12th. Participants
sign up for one week at a time. Campers may choose one week of camp, or all six.
Youth also have a choice of a morning or afternoon session (but not both).
Morning camp will run from 9:00am to 12:00pm and the afternoon session will
begin at 1:00pm and end at 4:00pm. “We are very excited about this new
schedule,” says Club Coordinator Christy Monroe. “Having morning and afternoon
sessions will allow us to accommodate families’ schedules more easily, while
allowing us to serve twice as many kids.”

Encourage you camper to pick a track—or focus area—for each week of camp
based on their interests. Bobcat kids will play field games and sports. Fox kids
will engage in creative art activities. Moose kids will spend their time
volunteering in the community. Visit www.youthlinksonline.org/RASA
for complete program descriptions and registration information.

RASA, a 21st Century Community Learning Center Program, is a
partnership between Youthlinks, a program of Broadreach Family & Community
Services, and RSU 13.
