Great Summers Start Here!

Summer is right around the corner – and we are gearing up to welcome 800 Paterson and Passaic kids to our Summer Camp!

Our full-day program allows parents to work knowing their kids are in a safe, positive place led by our caring, trained staff.  Kids are active and engaged in athletics, swimming, games, STEM, literacy, art, dance and more! Healthy breakfast, lunch and snacks are served each day to ensure kids have energy to learn and play, and our summer tutoring program helps campers stay sharp and prepared for school in the fall.

But we can’t do it without your help…please give the gift of Great Summers – and Great Futures – to youth of Paterson and Passaic today!

Teens Explore Possibilities

Our 2nd annual Teen College and Career Fair was held earlier this month and a great success!  Club Teens met with college and vocational school reps and employers from the banking, grocery, healthcare, and technology industries, who shared work and academic opportunities that our teens can explore now while also opening their minds to future educational and career paths.
