Reaching out to strengthen family ties through Education, Inspiration, and Independence” The Trinise Jones Summer Day Camp is an affordable, seven-week summer camp for all youth, with an emphasis on at-risk youth, and youth from low income families ages 4 – 15, residing in Harford County who may need assistance with child care over the summer. The educational camp is designed to provide classroom and outdoor educational opportunities for youth during the summer to prevent the loss of critical information learned during the school year. The camp also exposes youth to creative electives such as drama, music, art and wood shop and offers weekly swimming excursions and field trips to various locations and sites. The camp also provides summer job opportunities to youth ages 14 and up for those that qualify. The Goal is to provide a summer camp experience for low-income single parent families and to provide affordable day care during the summer to prevent the extended unsupervised hours. The camp will support 125 low-income families along the Route 40 corridor for single parents to access for their children during the summer. The program is not only for the single parent population but for all that desire a safe summer camp experience for their children. We also provide opportunity for teens to gain work experience and skills by providing jobs as teacher’s aides and teachers. Our desire is to also involve the parent in the daily interactions of the campers whether field trips , snacks and or volunteer time in the classroom settings. We assist the camper with a structured classroom setting in which they learn and reiterate what they have learned in school. We also provide transportation along the route 40 corridor for those that necessarily would not be able to attend camp because lack of transportation. As for the youth and young adults we hire the objective is to provide the opportunity for the youth to learn proper work ethics, explore child development career options, and earn extra cash to offset their increasing personal expenses.
