We’ve wrapped up another awesome Summer Camp here at the YWCA! We averaged 125 campers, and their days were packed with field trips to local parks, Splashville, Waynesville Water Park, Erwin Pool, and the Carl Sandburg house. They also took a Gray Line Trolley tour of Asheville, and provided advice to the Asheville DesignBuild Studio on our new outdoor classroom and covered walkway.
Thanks to the Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association, Girl Scouts, Asheville Design Center, Art Studio Miami, and the Asheville Tourists for providing in-kind enrichment activities to our campers.
A huge thank you to the United Way for donating 40 backpacks to help some of our students prepare for the new school year.
At the end of Summer Camp party in the YW parking lot we asked some campers (and some parents!) to tell us their favorite part of the summer:
“We loved going to the pool and to the water park. We also loved playing outside in parks.”
