Youth Summer Programs
In August, for our annual Backpack Giveaway, we have 3 locations throughout Edgewood, Milton and Fife, we use as a distribution site. Not only is this event meeting a practical need of assisting families as school begins, but it is also a great tool to bring awareness of MVCC, reinforce and strengthen community relationships, and build new partnerships with the goal of better serving the FME area!
We offer two sessions of Summer Day Camp for children going into grades K-6 to connect and learn in a fun environment. Campers are provided with social and educational experiences through daily activities involving art, STEM, fitness, outdoor exploration, and citizenship.
Our summer meal program provides food packs at multiple easily accessed locations during summer break. An average of 1,500 packs are distributed in a 10 weeks period.
"My son’s first camp experience at MVCC’s Camp Community Explorers was incredible! He was nervous at first, but the counselors made him feel welcome and safe. I cannot express my gratitude to MVCC’s volunteers and staff for putting together such an amazing experience for the kids in out community.”
