Winter Break Camp from Dec. 30-Jan. 2 was the perfect way to celebrate the end of 2019 and ring in 2020, especially since it was the first break camp ever to be held in our new facility! At Positive Tomorrows, our programs are in session year-round, even when other schools are out on breaks such as winter break around the holidays.
More than 60 kiddos comprised of current and former students, spent the week with staff and volunteers for a series of coordinated activities, which included things like arts & crafts projects to a trip to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and ice skating at the Devon Ice Rink in downtown OKC.
“I really liked being able to see my friends everyday,” said Macie*, a 5th grader at Positive Tomorrows. “If I had stayed at home, I probably wouldn’t have been able to see anyone or do anything fun like what we did at camp. It was really cool to go ice skating downtown.”
While there were a lot of fun activities, students also experienced firsthand the impact community organizations can make when they work together as they and a few other youth groups helped the Regional Food Bank prepare the equivalent of just over 4,200 meals in one afternoon!
Break camps are a part of our extracurricular programming, which provides engaging and enriching activities for our kiddos outside of classroom curriculum. Positive Tomorrows provides transportation to and from camp, three meals per day, and admissions and necessary supplies to participate in these activities are covered free of charge. Our extracurricular programs, like winter break camp, wouldn’t be possible without our generous volunteers and donors. Learn more about becoming a volunteer or check out our needs list today.
