Immediate Needs: Summer Volunteers: SummerQuest!

Want to be a super hero? Join the CYD “Dream Team” and help to fight summer learning loss! We need volunteers to assist with CYD’s academic summer camp – SummerQuest. This camp is six weeks, and rising 4th, 6th, and 8th graders will embark on a quest for adventure and knowledge. Throughout the six weeks students will experience fun, hands-on math and reading enrichment while strengthening academic skills. Camp is Monday through Friday from 10am -2pm.
