Great Futures Summer Camp
Posted By: Joanne Campbell (June 23, 2020)
Great Futures Summer Camp provides a summer program for students in the Wayne-Westland community. Great Futures is held at the Jefferson Barns Community Vitality Center, located in the heart of the Norwayne community. Norwayne is Westland’s most historic and most economically challenged neighborhood, with a tremendous need for the summer program. Camp experiences include education in the arts, gardening, camping, science and technology. Campers' routine includes helping in the Norwayne Community Garden, "camping" in Venoy-Dorsey Park (across from the JBCVC), and interaction with Westland's Community Police Officers. The camp also provides training experience for junior counselors. Camp expenses are funded with financial support from the community. All sponsors are invited to spend time with campers, learning alongside and sharing professional stories. Beginning this summer, all COVID-19 protocols will be in place during the camp experience.
