This year the League is swimming to raise money for KIDS CORP KIDS CAMP: As an incentive to stay in summer school and as an educational field trip, the students attending Kids Corp Kids Schools and 35 Partner Programs throughout Newark get to make weekly day trips to Kids Summer Camp here in Sussex County, where they investigate nature, swim in the pool, create art, learn teamwork skills, and get health exams. An average of 200 different children visit each day, and the activities and curriculum change each week, so that every visit to Kids Camp is a new and engaging exploration. Each week’s theme is tailored to work in tandem with the in-school curriculum, for an inter-disciplinary approach that maximizes our ability to engage and teach in-depth concepts. Kids Camp provides children with positive experiences: to experience the beauty of unspoiled nature, to face and overcome challenges, to develop leadership qualities and to feel the joy of discovery. Most of all, Kids Camp surrounds students with opportunities to expand their minds and extend themselves. It’s a daylong adventure in learning. Throughout the day, the staff seizes upon every opportunity to capitalize on teachable moments: making connections to classroom instruction, stimulating the children’s senses and imagination, and surrounding the children with opportunities to explore new worlds. Since 1971, this important program that benefits over 2,000 children city-wide has been supported by the imaginative minds at The Prudential Foundation.
