Targeting under-served students in grades 3-5, Game Changers combines camp experiences with structured academic enrichment activities. Program curriculum is built on helping students grow self-confidence and develop the lifelong skills needed to thrive in the 21st century. The program includes seven touches – one day at camp for Environmental Education and one day to engage with staff, four school visits, and a full week of overnight or day camp during the summer. Funded through the generosity of our donors, the program is offered to families at no cost. Last year, YMCA Camp Thunderbird engaged 66 Game Changers students.
$1,500 provides a child with one year of Game Changers to help develop the lifelong skills needed to thrive in the 21st century.
