YMCA exhibit in Avenue of the Friends offers Summer Camp opportunities

During the latter half of June, the YMCA has been presenting information about their Wilderness Summer Camp for children on our public exhibit table.  You still have time to see this display before it is taken down and followed by a display by Tompkins Learning Partners.

Y-Wilderness camp offers children positive developmental experiences and encourages them to forge bonds with each other. Children experience a sense of achievement through opportunities in the outdoors. Y-Wilderness campers are able to explore creativity, experience teamwork and practice leadership in a wide range of primitive activities that influence lifelong healthy living. They have the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor environment where they develop an appreciation of nature. The Y believes that when kids stretch their legs, explore new fields, and connect with the world around them, they grow into healthy, inspired, and confident adventurers who are fortified with a richer sense of their environment and a set of values that are based on an appreciation for the beauty of the natural outdoors.
