Paradise at Parkside 2018 Summer Camp Review
This summer the camper’s at the annual Summer Camp participated in the activities ranging from skateboarding to making abstract art. Over the four weeks of camp, our youth played countless games of dodgeball, strung thousands of beads for friendship bracelets, and made their fair share of messes. The youth started each day with breakfast. They were greeted at the door by counselors and volunteers whose goal was to give our kids the best summer possible. The team of counselors leading the youth through the day’s program included multiple dedicated residents of Paradise and mothers in the community whose leadership and love helped our youth know they are supported in their homes and on our courtyards- this summer and beyond.

To close the day and end camp, each camper received a bookbag donated by MPD officer Medina from the 6th District Police Department. Both our skateboarding and arts programs will continue over from this summer into the afterschool programming. If you are interested in enrolling your youth in either program I encourage you to pick up an enrollment form now from the Community Center. Note from the author: We are also looking to collect the memories of those in the community who went to Camp Paradise as a child! If you are interested in contributing your memories, you can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to hear from you soon.
