Like many schools across the Country, Foster Elementary School in California, The Fresh Creek School in New York and Napier Elementary in Tennessee have faced severe budget cuts. One result of these cuts was the elimination of summer school and any additional summer programming once offered to the students. WME employees recognized the need to provide these children with enrichment activities during the summer season and created Camp Summer Eagle, Camp Summer Lion and now Camp Summer Bear.
WME employees work with school and city leaders to create a curriculum in reading, arts and physical activity. Saturdays during the summer, students gather to take part in a series of camp games, songs and arts activities. Additionally, volunteers work with students to improve their reading skills and prepare them for the school year to come in fun and innovative ways. WME’s Summer Camps strive to give students who would normally have nothing to do during the summer a chance to create, learn and build memories that will last a lifetime!
