With spring just around the corner, it’s time to get thinking about summer camps! CLC kids have the same opportunities as everyone else to go to camp, form friendships, learn new skills, and experience the wonders of nature! To help you and your client find a camp that would be a good fit for them, we’ve listed those on our website that have at least partial scholarships available for children in need. In addition to scholarships through the camps themselves, alternate funding may be available through your client’s county worker, adoption worker, or mental health worker. Please call our CLC Social Worker, Rachel Ayoub, for additional information. Most applications are due in late March or Early April.
Happy New Year! Big things are happening that help foster youth this January!
